A new Jamaica Manufacturers' Association (JMA) president will be elected today when Brian Pengelley's four-year term comes to an end.

"The constitution only allows four years, and that's a good thing," Pengelley told the Jamaica Observer yesterday.

Pengelley said he will use his address at this morning's annual general meeting to recap the four years of his presidency, looking specifically at the direction the country is taking, especially with the International Monetary Fund agreement, and the all-encompassing omnibus legislation.

His review will also look at the work that the JMA has done with the Ministry of Finance to put in place measures that encourage and protect local manufacturing.
