Jamaica Promotions Corporation, JAMPRO, has launched a new online portal to provide companies with the information and resources needed to interact and do business with the government.

The ‘Jamaica Business Gateway’ platform will enable members of the public and private sector to easily access the essential services related to government processes required for business development.

Speaking at the launch, held at the AC Hotel by Marriott in Kingston on Wednesday, President of JAMPRO, Shullette Cox, described the Gateway as one giant step closer to making digitised government services a reality.

Ms. Cox says the platform will revolutionise the way businesses apply for and track various permits, licences and approvals from the government.

She says the launch is the beginning of a journey that will eventually see all of the government’s business services linked and integrated in a single online space.

According to the JAMPRO President, the Corporation formed a team, supported by four private-sector entities, which has been working tirelessly for the past two years to develop a platform that simplifies bureaucratic processes and empowers entrepreneurs, both big and small, to navigate government’s administrative landscape seamlessly.

The JAMPRO President explained that the Gateway will give businesses the ability to find step-by-step information on various government processes as well as to complete applications online from the comfort of their own offices or homes.
