ENHANCING COMPETITIVENESS AND GROWTH

Jamaica: Foundations for Competitiveness and Growth The objective of this project is to strengthen the enabling environment for private sector competitiveness to help unleash growth and competitiveness in the Jamaican economy. These goals are expected to be attained by enhancing competition in the business environment, facilitating large-scale private investment and supporting Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) by providing low-cost financing.

This project is funded by a loan of US$50mn from the World Bank and will be implemented over a 6- year period.

During the 2016/2017 fiscal year, the development of the Application Management and Data Analysis (AMANDA) system continued with the approval of the functional requirements documents by the National Works Agency, negotiation with an information technology firm and the submission of justification for the Public Portal II and the establishment of a wide area network (WAN) among all the participating agencies. A second attorney was engaged and placed at the Attorney General’s Chamber to review key commercial transaction documents. The disbursement of loan funds from the Development Bank of Jamaica (DBJ) to SMEs was over $600mn.

In the 2017/18 fiscal year, the WAN for the AMANDA is scheduled to be established and this will facilitate the further development of Public Portal II in the Municipal Corporations and other referral agencies. The feasibility study to assess the viability of establishing a ship registry is scheduled to be implemented during the fiscal year. The Logistic Hub Initiative (LHI) Master Plan which started in the early 2016/17 is expected to be completed. The engagement and placement of two (2) attorneys at the Attorney General’s Chamber will continue and this is expected to help clear the backlog of key commercial transaction documents to be reviewed. The drafting of the regulations governing of the Special Economic Zone (SEZ) Act and the subsequent promulgation of the Act are expected to be completed in fiscal year. The SEZ Authority is scheduled to be established and an interim head is to be appointed to lead the agency. The study to determine the feasibility of establishing the Caymanas Economic Zone (CEZ) is expected to commence after delays in completing the procurement processes. The firm managing the Jamaica Business Fund programme is scheduled to continue disbursing grants
