Jamaica’s Prime Minister, Andrew Holness, is again calling on the private sector to increase its investment in the economy.
He said the Government is working “very hard to ensure that every single Jamaican entrepreneur who has the industry, the drive, the enterprise, the entrepreneurship can, in the Jamaican environment, take the risk and invest”.
The Prime Minister was speaking at the recent opening of the new BMW and MINI showrooms at 38-42 Lady Musgrave Road in St. Andrew.
The project is part of a US$50-million investment by Sandals Resort International, ATL Autobahn and Marriot International that will also see the construction of a lifestyle centre – complete with a hotel, conference centre, restaurant, spa and gym.
Prime Minister Holness commended the partners for their continued investment in Jamaica.
He said the Government is ready to partner with private investors and make the necessary financing and policies available for an investor-friendly economy.
This, he said, will allow for increased economic growth and job creation.
