Stakeholders who’ve signed the new Partnership for a Prosperous Jamaica agreement say it’s important to help Jamaica realize its full potential.

The Partnership for a Prosperous Jamaica replaces the previous Partnership for Jamaica launched in 2013 by the Simpson Miller administration.

Representatives of civil society, private sector and trade unions signed the agreement yesterday.

President of the Jamaica Civil Service Association, O’Neil Grant, signed on behalf of trade unions.

The President of the Private Sector Organization of Jamaica, Paul B. Scott, says the partnership should help in accelerating economic growth.

Meanwhile, CEO of the Jamaica Environment Trust, Diana Mccaulay, says while the partnership agreement is not perfect, it’s a step in the right direction.
