Jamaica Maritime Authority Moves
The Maritime Authority of Jamaica has a new head office - right on the waterfront in Kingston. Customers of the MAJ and Jamaica Flag Registry are set to benefit from the new location which is also closer to the Maritime Training Institute and only seven minutes from the Port of Kingston. The MAJ says its new offices will allow for greater accessibility to the MAJ by its customers and will better enable the MAJ to serve its market.
Seymour Harley, Registrar General of Ships, said: "We are delighted that we are exactly one minute's walk - I timed it! - from a vessel docked along the waterfront. Previously we were located in the heart of the uptown business district with only 'peephole' views of the harbour through skyscrapers. Now the Maritime Authority is situated where it should be - by the sea."
