New British High Commissioner Asif Ahmad says there are  opportunities to bolster the Jamaican economy by forming a closer link with the UK Diaspora which should create more SMEs.

He was speaking with Loop’s Group Executive Editor Al Edwards in an interview where he explained that he would like to see a better connection between Jamaican and British companies.

Ahmad also said that remittances should create a multiplier effect rather than simply be used for consumables, particularly imported goods.
