As such, JETAA Jamaica and JETAA Trinidad & Tobago will be supported by CLAIR's New York office, allowing them to be more closely connected with the North American chapters.

JETAA Jamaica and JETAA Trinidad & Tobago will retain their autonomy as individual chapters and will continue to represent their countries in matters concerning the JET Programme, as well as in matters related to JETAA International.

On Friday, November 12, 2021, Matthew Gillam, Senior Researcher at Japan Local Government Center, New York, joined JETAA Jamaica at its monthly meeting to explain the nature of the relationship that CLAIR New York hopes to foster with JETAA Jamaica.
