Chairman for The Economic Programme Oversight Committee, Richard Byles says he expects Jamaica to get a positive rating in the next  IMF review.

Another positive review would see the country passing the seventh consecutive test under the programme.

An IMF team is expected in the island this month to conduct the review.

Mr. Byles says his positive outlook is partly informed by the fact that Jamaica has far exceeded the Net International Reserves, NIR target, up to January 2015.

The government has also met the primary surplus target for April to December 2014.
