Public Sector Transformation Program reduced public bodies by 41, says Dr. Nigel Clarke

Finance Minister Dr. Nigel Clarke says there are 41 fewer public bodies operating in government.

He gave an update on the progress of the Public Sector Transformation Programme, during the recent Caribbean Public Sector Financial Management Conference.

Dr. Clarke says in 2016, there were 190 public bodies.

That number now stands at about 149.

Under the Rationalisation of Public Bodies Project, Jamaica has benefited from a reduction in the number of public bodies through mergers, closures, divestments, and the integration into parent ministries.
