I am saddened at the news of the passing of Mr. Colin Bullock, former Financial Secretary in the Ministry of Finance and the Public Service, 2005-2008.
Mr. Bullock will be remembered for his contribution to the economic development of his country; having served at the Bank of Jamaica for 20 years and rising to the position of Deputy Governor before being appointed to the post of Financial Secretary and then Director General of the Planning Institute of Jamaica.
He has shared his technical competence through lecturing at the University of the West Indies for many years where he inspired the minds of tertiary students who have grown professionally to become outstanding economists in Jamaica and across the globe.
It is said that “Man’s life is truly wasted if at the end of his day he has failed to pass on his experiences.” This was not so in Colin Bullock’s case.
On behalf of myself and the Government of Jamaica, I extend deepest condolences to his two children, brother, and other family members.
May the comfort of God help them during this difficult time.
