approved the NMIA Enterprise Team continuing with efforts to identify a concessionaire.

The Government intends to re-package the opportunity and relaunch an international

procurement for the expansion and operation of the Airport.

The BOJ has also commenced work on developing the regime for financial holding companies and consolidated supervision under the Banking Services Act, with the release in November 2016 of the Consultation Paper on Consolidated Capital Adequacy for public feedback.

Private Sector Pension Reform The second phase of private sector pension reform seeks to address issues such as vesting, portability and indexation. To achieve this objective, a Bill to amend the Pensions (Superannuation Funds & Retirement Schemes) Act was drafted in November 2016 and is expected to be tabled in FY 2017/18.

Insurance (Amendment) Act During FY 2016/17, the Financial Services Commission (FSC) submitted a proposal for amendment of the Insurance Act to the MOFPS. The proposed amendment will facilitate the creation of a micro- insurance legislative framework and also pave the way for the introduction of regulations to govern the industry.

Proposed Micro Credit Act The Chief Parliamentary Counsel (CPC) completed the second draft of the Microcredit Bill in July 2016. The Bill was thereafter circulated to key stakeholders for review and comments. Informed by these comments, the MOFPS issued further drafting instructions to the CPC in November 2016 for a revision of the Bill. The proposed new Act is intended to provide for the licensing and regulation of small privately-owned money lending institutions in an effort to address operational deficiencies in the industry. It will also seek to promote greater transparency, protect consumers and reduce or eliminate the risks of the industry being used as a vehicle for facilitating money laundering.

Public Sector Pension Reform The Pensions (Public Service) Bill was resubmitted to the Committee">Legislation Committee in June 2016 for review by the new Committee in accordance with legislative procedures. The Bill was subsequently re-tabled in Parliament in July 2016. In addition, the CPC completed the draft accompanying Regulations in November 2016. Parliament is expected to pass the Pensions Act in the March 2017 quarter for implementation on April 1, 2017.

National Financial Inclusion Strategy (NFIS) Cabinet approved a NFIS in May 2016. The strategy sets out a coordinated approach to encourage financial inclusion in Jamaica. However, the full implementation of the NFIS is contingent on the establishment of the National Financial Inclusion Council (NFIC), which will be ultimately responsible for implementation of the NFIS. The NFIC is expected to be appointed by March 2017. A Financial Inclusion Steering Committee (FISC) has been established to oversee the implementation of the NFIS and will report to the NFIC. The FISC will be supported by a technical secretariat that will monitor and evaluate the action items under the NFIS.

The NFIS seeks to create an environment in which under-served Jamaican citizens and micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) are provided with the relevant knowledge and access to
