President of the Micro, Small and Medium-Sized Enterprise, MSME Alliance, Donovan Wignall says Jamaica’s economy is still on track to return to pre-Covid-19 levels by next year.

Despite a spike in Covid-19 cases, Mr. Wignall is confident the Jamaican economy will stay afloat.

He is optimistic that people’s perception of vaccines will change overtime.

Wignall says the country’s economy will not crumble if the vaccine take up rate improves in the coming months.

Hykel Nunes has more in this report.


Last year the PSOJ projected that Jamaica’s economy will return to pre-Covid-19 levels between 2022 and 2024.

According to Wignall this projection is still on track.

He however believes this is only achievable if there is a massive change in the mind set of Jamaicans towards the vaccine.

Meanwhile he is urging business owners to adapt to online platforms, while they wait on the country’s vaccination numbers to improve.
