Edmund Bartlett has been an active Member of Parliament for more than 22 years. During that time he has also served as Opposition Spokesman for Tourism, earning the respect of Industry players in both the private and public sectors for his active participation in and thorough knowledge of the sector as well as for sound judgment and fair play in all commentary on its development. Minister Bartlett comes to his new appointment with a track record of service as a legislator in central government in both chambers of the House, in the Upper House as a Senator, and in the Lower House as a Member of Parliament, the position which he currently holds. He has served as Minister of Youth and Community Development as well as Minister of State for Information, Broadcasting and Culture in a previous administration of the Jamaica Labour Party in the 1980s. His professional career spans several positions including Senior Accountant-Revere Alumina Jamaica Ltd., Vice President-World Conference on Cultural Policies and Vice Chairman-U.N. International Youth Year Advisory committee. He counts his tenure as Marketing Sales Manager-Texaco Caribbean Inc. immediately preceding his entry into representational politics as perhaps some of his most valuable years in the private sector in preparing him for his current assignment. He is also the Founder and Patron of Jamaica Foundation for Children. Minister Bartlett is a graduate of the University of the West Indies.
