SUITE JAMAICA came about after discussions with hotel management following discussions and challenges by the Minister of Tourism Edmund Bartlett. These challenges stemmed from reports and research made by Anthea McGibbon during her 14-year tenure at the Gleaner, where one of her roles was to write about the Arts and Cuture of Jamaica which led her to do a project on Arts and Toursim of Jamaica.
