Finance Minister Audley Shaw says he’s confident Jamaica is on track to pass its 13th consecutive IMF test.
Mr. Shaw says the Government’s commitments under the IMF programme have not suffered any fallout from its successful roll out of the first phase of the income tax break initiative.
He says the country is on track to perform well when the next IMF test is due.
Mr. Shaw says the feedback to the Government’s roll-out of the first phase of the tax break initiative has been positive.
According to Mr. Shaw the Holness administration will continue its tax reform push which includes a move away from direct taxation.
