The Bank of Jamaica, established under the Bank of Jamaica Law (1960). Operations officially began in 1961 and since then it has continually met the need for an appropriately regulated financial structure for a nation that was on the verge of and after political independence.

Its main objectives are to foster the development of money and capital Jamaican markets, issuing and redeeming notes and coins and to keep and disseminate the countries reserves.

operation of the National Trust were provided in the annual Government budget but with the pressing demands of the priorities of a developing country, these were never adequa
te to meet the needs. In these limited circumstances there have been nevertheless some outstanding achievements and the Commission was fortunate for several years to have had the services of the late Mr. T.A.K. Concannon, an experienced and dedicated preservationist.
As was only natural the original lists reflected the time and value of the Colonial era. The Commission in 1965 revised the published a new list of monuments. Since then there have been additions in keeping with our awareness as an Independent nation, providing for the recognition of persons and places of special significance in the evolution of the nation, hitherto neglected.
The National Trust Law was from the start inadequate to protect effectively the monuments, and requests made to Government for the necessary amendments never receiv ed attention. Mr. Concannon, had from time to time made representations in respect to this and was constantly frustrated. The JNHT which replaced the original organisation no doubt has a more comprehensive and satisfactory governing law.
September 1968 to April 1969 a UNESCO Mission composed of Prof. Christopher Tunnard and Mr. John C. Pollacco visited Jamaica and carried out a survey of historic buildings and sites in order to make recommendation for their development and presentation particularly in reference to the development of Tourism. They were considerably assisted by Mr. Concannon, advisor to the National Trust, Mr. G.C. Hodges of the Town Planning Department and Mr. C.B. Lewis, Director of Institute of Jamaica, and both members of the Jamaica National Trust Commission. Read more......Read less
