The Opposition Leader, Andrew Holness, has criticised the government for passing IMF while failing to grow the economy.

Recently, the IMF signalled that the government has passed a 7th consecutive test.

The IMF’s resident representative in Jamaica, Dr. Bert Van Selm, also said he expected the economy to grow by at least 2-percent in 2015.

Mr. Holness says government should reduce the tax burden on certain businesses to stimulate growth.
