Growth Council Seeking 5% GDP Growth In Next Four Years


Business mogul Michael Lee Chin, who was yesterday named chairman of the Government’s Economic Growth Council (EGC), has pledged to work tirelessly with council members and other Jamaican stakeholders to achieve economic growth of five per cent over the next four years.

“I am going to make the first pledge, but I’m going to ask all stakeholders in Jamaica also make a public pledge as to what their involvement in GDP (gross domestic product) growth is going to be,” Lee Chin said.

“I pledge as the chairman of the EGC that the EGC will work tirelessly and passionately to achieve a GDP growth rate of five per cent over the next four years, which is 10 times more than what we have seen for the last 20 years, which is 25 times more than we have seen over the last 10 years,” he added.

“That’s our pledge. We are going to work tirelessly to achieve that goal,” Lee Chin said at the official launch of the council at Jamaica House.
