The Negril Chamber of Commerce was established in 1983 as a broad based community organization working for the sustainable development of Negril - such as the 2015 Negril and Green Island Development Order.
Its membership includes a wide range of hotels, businesses, associations and individuals who are concerned about the social and physical environment of Negril. Join us by filling out the online membership application form!
Negril's Public Health Clinic - Needs Major Upgrades
Negril needs a functional, up-to-date clinic which is capable of delivering first-class medical care to all its residents and thousands of tourists. To achieve this, we cannot rely on the government alone - this calls for a united effort by the private and public sector, which includes all of us - business and individuals, large and small.
