THE Jamaica Promotions Corporation (JAMPRO) is banking on five of the country’s largest sectors to pull in investments of more than US$1 billion ($115 billion) into the economy.
The trade and investment agency is now gearing up for the second staging of the Jamaica Investment Forum (JIF). The first forum in 2012 generated more than US$500 million worth of projects for the country, in addition to the employment of some 2000 individuals.
The forum, which will be held at the Montego Bay Convention Centre over a two-day period beginning March 10, is targeting business process outsourcing, tourism, manufacturing, agribusiness and the financial services sectors to build a logistics-centred economy.
