Co-Chair of the Economic Programme Oversight Committee, EPOC, Keith Duncan, says the environment exists for the country to achieve 5-percent economic growth within 3-years.

Speaking at a media briefing last week, Mr. Duncan says Jamaicans must come on board and make the investments needed for the projection to be realized.

Many have doubted the feasibility of the much talked about 5 percent growth in four years target announced by Economic Growth Council Chairman Michael Lee Chin in 2016.

This as the IMF puts Jamaica’s GDP growth rate at 1-point-3 percent at the end of 2016 and 2-point-8 percent at the end of 2020.

But Mr. Duncan argues that significant opportunities exist for Jamaicans to take advantage of.

Mr. Duncan says Jamaica is open for business.
