Improved FX Rate Boosts Reserves

Co-Chair of the Economic Programme Oversight Committee, Keith Duncan, says an increase in the nation’s foreign exchange rate has pushed up the country’s foreign exchange reserves.

He says that’s projected to continue.

Mr. Duncan also says a potential rise in inflation due to rapid economic growth, may result in an increased demand for Jamaica’s products.

And, the EPOC Co-Chair is urging the government to invest more in training and employment programmes geared towards the youth.
