HOTELIER Gordon ‘Butch’ Stewart on Tuesday pointed out the importance of a level playing field to businesses, even as the Government highlighted the changes it has made so far to encourage investment.
The issue was raised during a discussion on economic growth at a news luncheon hosted by Stewart at the Jamaica Observer for Government ministers.
A second such luncheon is scheduled for today for members of the Opposition.
“Some of us have had to go out of Jamaica to be able to access the incentives that foreign investors get when they are coming here,” said Stewart, whose Sandals and Beaches resorts are sited in seven islands across the Caribbean.
“So straightening out that playing field is crucial in order to get the growth that your Government has been really trying to do in more ways than one,” Stewart added.
