KINGSTON, Jamaica— Following the agency's recent call for new investment projects, President ofJamaica Promotions Corporation (JAMPRO) Diane Edwards is encouraging local companies to take full advantage of the range of services provided to drive investment and trade in Jamaica.

Edwards made a special call to large companies to capitalise on the business support that the agency provides.

Edwards said that JAMPRO facilitates both local and international investors, adding that the agency also provides services to people in the local business community who need general support such as exporter and film registration, market information, industry and market opportunity analysis, training sessions, and exporter and investor readiness assessments.

“A part of JAMPRO's mandate is business facilitation services for companies in Jamaica; providing general support to many persons locally who are interested in optimizing their businesses to achieve greater success. More than 2,000 persons walk through JAMPRO's doors each year for general support, and we want to see more Jamaicans coming to us for the range of services we offer,” she said.

Edwards noted that in addition to the agency's general advocacy activities to make it easier to do business, JAMPRO's clients receive assistance to realise their business goals. This includes market intelligence sharing,customized market information, business to business matchmaking, business approvals facilitation, site selection facilitation, targeted client support, and business facilitation meetings.

According to JAMPRO, in the last year alone, support was provided for over 600 companies that engaged the agency for export and other business development services. In addition, the agency provided business support for a number of recent multi-million-dollar local investments and export projects, including the Eight Rivers energy project in Westmoreland, the Amaterra Group hotel development project in Trelawny and Scotch Boyz, a local manufacturer of a line of sauces.Edwards said she wants other Jamaicans to join these already existing JAMPRO clients on their business journey.

“Our goal is to expand the island's economic growth and to do that, we must generate activity that will create jobs and increase the flow of capital in the economy. We believe that there are many local business entities who can benefit from our support and can contribute to Jamaica's economic growth, so we invite them to call us or come in to JAMPRO's offices to access services that will be beneficial for their business.”
