Managing Director of the National Export-Import Bank of Jamaica, EXIM Bank, Lisa Bell, has pledged the entity’s continued commitment to stimulating growth and development of businesses.

Speaking at the bank’s recent 30th anniversary customer appreciation event, Bell indicated that EXIM Bank will continue to work with the Government of Jamaica in recommending policies that will enhance the support it has given to businesses.

She says particular focus will be on small and medium-size enterprises, SMEs, in emerging sectors.

Bell says the bank will also continue to initiate programmes that are designed to empower customers to expand both locally and internationally.

She says as part of this arrangement, over the next few months, the bank will be launching what she describes as more innovative financing opportunities tailored specifically for the SME sector, in order to meet the most important needs of emerging businesses.

The bank’s 30th anniversary is being observed under the theme: ‘Supporting Jamaica, 30 Years and Beyond’.
