Prime Minister Andrew Holness says the Business Process Outsourcing sector has become a major engine of growth, with employment numbers nearly doubling in the last five years.
The Prime Minister was speaking at the opening of the BPO company IBEX Global in Portmore on Saturday.
He also revealed that the estimated spend in the BPO sector has similarly increased.
Mr. Holness says these numbers have helped to solidify the sector as significant in Jamaica’s growth agenda.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Holness says the government is committed to fostering further development in the sector.
