PM Makes ‘Big Pitch’ at Jamaica Investment Forum

Prime Minister Andrew Holness is urging potential investors not to miss their opportunity to invest in Jamaica now as the country is poised for significant growth in the medium and long terms.

Addressing the Jamaica Investment Forum 2018 this afternoon, Prime Minister Holness called on investors to sign on early and reap the benefits when the Jamaican economy flourishes.

Prime Minister Holness today told scores of potential foreign and local investors to grow with Jamaica as prosperity is certainly in the country’s future.

He points to several investments already in the pipeline with significant growth potential.

The Prime Minister was addressing day two of the third annual staging of the Jamaica Investment Forum at the Montego Bay Convention Centre in St. James.

The annual conference is Jamaica’s premier forum to attract foreign direct investments. Mr. Holness told the investors that Jamaica has achieved the fiscal stability and discipline they crave to grow their markets.

He pointed to the success of the Economic Programme Oversight Committee, EPOC, and the soon to come Fiscal Council as proof of the country’s commitment to fiscal prudence.

The Prime Minister points to the gains in the ease of doing business and reduction of red tape as further signs that Jamaica is ripe for investment.

He says it’s his intention to make Jamaica the hub of economic activity in the Caribbean. To rousing applause he urged potential investors to share in that future.
