As preparations for next yearâ€™s Cricket World Cup go in full swing, the organisers in the West Indies have arranged a crash course for the islanders on how to cash in on cricketing extravaganza.
A large number of residents in Kingston and St Andrew attended the course at Jamaica Conference Centre where they were told how to make the best use of the showpiece event.
Jamaica was named host of the opening ceremony, four warm-up matches, seven first-round games and a semifinal.
Robert Bryan, Executive Director of the Jamaica Cricket 2007 said, â€œThe opportunity is to organise ourselves to take advantage of all the commercial activities in points of interest that the city of Kingston will be able to offer during the period.
â€œFar more important, I believe, is to actually get people thinking as to how using the (2007 World Cup) we can actually begin to reposition Kingston in the long term.â€
