IMF Mission Chief to Jamaica, Dr. Uma Ramakrishnan, says Jamaica has been the largest recipient of technical assistance from the IMF in the western hemisphere.

Jamaica’s Standby Arrangement with the IMF comes to an end in November.

However, Dr. Ramakrishan says the Fund will continue to provide technical support to Jamaica.

The IMF Mission Chief says Jamaica’s achievements over the past six years have been phenomenal.

She adds that this has been the first time the IMF has incorporated crime into one of its programmes.
