Jamaica is looking to secure investments of US$1 billion or more.
Finance Minister Dr. Nigel Clarke says the government is pushing to have amendments to the Large Scale Projects and Pioneer Industries Act of 2013 approved before the end of the financial year to support this new agenda.
"We have Omnibus Incentive legislation that is the framework for everyday investments but with the track record that Jamaica has established and with the macroeconomic fundamentals that we have, which are strong, our goal now is to attract investments that are a billion US dollars in size and more," he announced.
Dr. Clarke was contributing to the opening discussion at the Invest Jamaica 2022 Business Conference on Tuesday.
