Minister with responsibility for public service at the Ministry of Finance, Horace Dalley, says the country has gotten too complacent with anaemic growth.
Minister Dalley was speaking at a meeting of the Trade Facilitation Task force yesterday.
The task force aims to create strategies to improve Jamaica’s ability to attract foreign investment.
According to the World Bank, the most Jamaica has grown in the past ten years, is 2-point-9 percent, which was in 2006.
Just three years later, growth plummeted to its lowest point over the same period, negative 4-point-4 percent during the world economic crisis in 2009.
Minister Dalley is charging the task force with providing workable solutions to boosting growth.
