KINGSTON, Jamaica — The government, with an injection of US$300,000 through the Foundations for Competitiveness and Growth Project (FCGP), has extended funding to “Export Max”, JAMPRO's enterprise development for export growth programme.

According to the Planning Institute of Jamaica (PIOJ), the implementing agency for FCGP, the funds will provide productivity and business process training and ICT support for firms that are ready to increase export orders.

Speaking at the signing ceremony for Export Max III in Kingston today December 10, Deputy Director General of the PIOJ, Kirk Philips said, “our involvement is consistent with Goal 3 of Vision 2030 Jamaica that 'Jamaica's economy is prosperous.”

“JAMPRO's Export Max targets export ready firms with interventions to improve financial management, use more ICT in productivity and general business processes. We are pleased that the interventions to date under Export Max have led to more than 213 per centgrowth in export sales and 200 new jobs,” Philips explained.

Launched in 2011, Export Max is now in its third round of implementation, the PIOJ said.

The Institute added that it serves the purpose of jointly supporting the objectives of both Export Max III and FCGP by increasing the levels of exports from Jamaica through facilitating up to 50 firms with new contracts and orders.
