SCENE: PM Golding meets with outgoing German Ambassador + Yendi and friends launch her new non-profit

STATE MEN: PM Bruce Golding presents a little piece of Jamaica to outgoing Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany, Jurgen Engel, on Tuesday, June 28, at Jamaica House when Engel paid a courtesy call. Golding told Engel that he believes investment is an area worth exploring between the two countries. He further suggested that German investors attend a major investors' conference, which will be held in Jamaica in October. Golding also noted that the conference will accommodate leading investors from overseas and could assist with creating a new image for the country.

A BEAUTIFUL MIND: In the company of sponsors (like Digicel's Shelly Curran), entertainers (Tami Chynn hit the stage), good friends and general supporters, Yendi Phillipps hosted the official launch of her not-for-profit foundation Sunday evening at the Fiction club. Cheque presentations, a mini fashion show and an auction of some of Phillipps' pageant gowns were among the features at the event. The foundation has been established to support, among other things, health care provision and education for inner-city women.
