WITH the Government pursuing increased investment as a key driver of economic growth, the Jamaica Manufacturers’ Association’s (JMA) inaugural staging of the Jamaica International Exhibition (JIE) is expected to have a significant impact.
The three-day event kicks off at the Montego Bay Convention Centre in St James on June 1, and should see the participation of some 600 local, regional and international suppliers and buyers.
The JIE, to be hosted biennially, targets investment in the manufacturing, agriculture, tourism, and business processing sectors, among others. The exhibition is expected to offer local business people an opportunity to interact with some of the largest and most important traders worldwide.
Executive director of the JMA, Imega Breese McNab, addressing a meeting with members of the diplomatic corps at the Jamaica Pegasus hotel on February 7, said the multi-sectoral event is the JMA’s contribution to expanding investment and export, and to further integrate Jamaican trade into the global supply chain.
