Investment Minister and Chairman of the National Competitive Council, Daryl Vaz, says a lot of work is left to be done despite Jamaica’s move up the latest World Bank Doing Business Report rankings.

The 2020 report which was released yesterday shows Jamaica moving up four places on the rankings.

Jamaica’s improved ranking on the 2020 World Bank Doing Business Report comes following three consecutive years of decline.

Minister Vaz is crediting several stakeholders, including the private sector and a number of government agencies, for the improvement.

The Investment Minister says he’s pleased that of the territories assessed in the English Speaking Caribbean, Jamaica, which is ranked 71, has achieved the best score on the World Bank ranking.
