Jamaican Business Climate to Receive a Boost


Existing and new businesses operating in Jamaica will benefit from streamlined regulations and processes, public-private partnerships, as well as training and access to financing as a result of a US$ 50 million loan for the Foundations for Competitiveness and Growth Project, approved by the World Bank’s Board of Directors.

“This project complements Jamaica’s fiscal and monetary measures by supporting efforts within the public sector to enhance competitiveness among Jamaican enterprises,” said Jamaica’s Minister of Finance and Planning, Dr. Peter Phillips. “Creating the environment for innovation and enterprise will afford many vulnerable citizens real opportunities to earn their way out of poverty and marginalization.”
