Despite the launch of the highly touted Entertainment Registry by Government at the beginning of the month, the body is not yet ready according to a representative on the Entertainment Advisory Board.
Comedic actor Christopher Johnny Daley made the revelation to the media.
State Minister Damion Crawford with responsibility for Entertainment and Tourism agreed to participate in the discussion but went missing in action at the appointed time.
Minister Crawford is yet to comment on what prompted his absence.
The entertainment registry launched on September 1 is to provide a central portal for listing Jamaican entertainment services and companies, including their key profile and contact information; legitimize the entertainment industry; facilitate efficiency and transparency within the entertainment industry; and provide for the free movement of creative skills internationally and across the region.
Promoters are also expected to rate their events on a matrix provided.
