The government has set up an Economic Growth Council as part of its efforts to grow the economy and create jobs for Jamaicans.

The Council is to be chaired by businessman Michael Lee-Chin.

Andrew's Promises

Opposition Leader Andrew Holness last night said a government led by him would create a special council of investment ambassadors who would be tasked with seeking out investors worldwide and bringing them to Jamaica.

He also promised that the island’s foreign missions would engage in economic diplomacy as their main objective, and reiterated his party’s commitment to tax reform in order to help stimulate growth.
