New Head of the Jamaica Manufacturers and Exporters Association, JMEA, Richard Pandohie, is lamenting the decline of the sector over the years.
Mr. Pandhohie was elected to the position earlier today at the association’s Annual General Meeting.
He replaces Metry Seaga who demitted office of JMEA president today.
Mr. Pandohie is the CEO and Managing Director of Seprod Limited.
He previously served as Managing Director of Carreras Limited and Operations Manager at the Jamaica Biscuit Company.
He says more must be done to return manufacturing and exporting to their glory days.
However, he argues that the association itself must become its best advocate.
