The Chief Executive Officer of Continental Bakery, Gary Hendrickson says its the private sector and not the government, that must drive the growth of the Jamaican economy.

Mr. Hendrikson , a Vice President of the Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica, made the comment yesterday while addressing students at the Mona campus of the University of the West Indies.
