Milton Samuda, Chairman of Jampro, is confident that there will be diversification of investment options in the future, but he is cautioning that, if this is to happen, the government must remove the red tape associated with doing business in Jamaica.
He contends that “government’s bureaucratic processes must not hold up legitimate applications at any level, in any industry.”
According to the Jampro Chairman, “it is far better that efficient government be waiting on investments, than impatient investors be waiting on inefficient government.”
Jamaica recorded US$560 million in FDI inflows last year, which was the highest it had been in five years.
