New Kingston, is currnetly the main business center in Jamaica. It is where most of the International Banks and Insurance companies home offices are located.Years gone by many were located in Downtown Kingston, but at some point they all moved to what is referred to as uptown.
This is a video done by an expat Ria Bacon back in 2006. She has since moved on and is no longer in Kingston..
It is now April of 2017 and unfortunately, Downtown Kingston still looks pretty much the same way. Digicel a large International company, recently moved it’s headquarters to the area in hopes of revitalizing it all…I think many are hopeful that new changes will come to this area over the next few years.
