Ministry of Finance and the Public Service Fiscal Policy Paper 2017 65 | P a g e

Total capital expenditure/investment is forecast at $62,728.8mn, compared with estimated spend of $41,089.8mn for FY 2016/17. Three public bodies, namely the NHT ($26,157.0mn), NWC ($7,962.0mn) and PAJ ($9,660.0mn) account for 70.0% of the planned expenditure. Notably PAJ and the NWC expect that they will be able to implement the capital programme as scheduled during this FY given that requisite approvals have been received as well as other preparatory activities substantially completed.

Jamaica">Port Authority of Jamaica (PAJ) PAJ’s developmental projects are strategically aligned to the Government of Jamaica’s growth and employment agenda and will be focused on Business Process Outsourcing (BPO). The development and expansion of Jamaica’s outsourcing industry is expected to be achieved through the construction of two BPO facilities in Kingston and Montego Bay. Cargo and Cruise Port Developments to support and facilitate growth and development in trade, commerce, tourism and cruise are planned for Falmouth, Montego Bay and Ocho Rios. These projects are expected to account for 65.0% of planned capital expenditure of $9,660.0mn.

Trust">National Housing Trust (NHT) The Trust will continue to pursue its drive to develop some 9,000 housing solutions by FY 2020/21; these solutions will comprise houses and residential lots in 42 developments over 11 parishes. It is expected that 2,159 housing solutions will be completed during FY 2017/18. Accordingly, the NHT is expected to spend $25,572.0 million on housing activities.

National Water Commission (NWC) The NWC will continue the implementation of selected strategies and capital projects that are expected to reduce the level of non-revenue water (NRW), achieve energy and other efficiency targets, contain operating costs and enhance revenues. Capital projects are budgeted at $7,962.0mn and include financing for pipeline replacement along the major road works being undertaken by the National Works Agency as well as funding for the KMA Water Supply Improvement project.

The group’s Overall Balance is projected at $1,705.4mn compared to estimated $16,987.0mn for FY 2016/17. The projected Overall Balance is driven primarily on the increased capital expenditure of the NWC and the PAJ. The Table following outlines the financial projection of the group of Public Bodies for FY 2017/18. The group is expected to return positive Overall Balances for the medium- term.
