Finance Minister, Audley Shaw, says employment in the Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) sector could move from 20,000 to 100,000 in the next four years.
He says he’s already getting commitments from investors who’ve demanded a trained or trainable workforce.
In the meantime, Minister Shaw says human underdevelopment is Jamaica’s greatest challenge at this time.
He also lists inequality in the access to educational opportunities at the early childhood level as one of the problems facing the country.
Minister Shaw says this was revealed in a study conducted by the Inter-American Development Bank, IDB.
