Finance and Planning Minister, Dr Nigel Clarke says he agrees with the IMF Division Chief’s projection that the Jamaican economy will recover by 2022- 2023. 

But the Minister says the question is when will the country return to it’s pre-covid economic levels of output. 

Dr Clarke says economic recovery isn’t synonymous with growth. 

Meanwhile, Minister Clarke refrained from saying what growth’s projected for Jamaica next year.
