JAMPRO President Diane Edwards said that the country is determined to correct that and to spread the word that Jamaica is open for business in many areas.

President of JAMPRO Diane Edwards announced that Jamaica Investment Forum (JIF) 2018 will take place at the Montego Bay Convention Centre between June 12 and June 14 at  a media launch at the J. Wray & Nephew Building at 23 Dominica Drive in Kingston.


Held triennially, the forum offers investors enviable access to opportunities and business projects that are exclusive to this event.

JIF is centred around six key sectors: tourism, agriculture, manufacturing, energy, logistics and business process outsourcing; and will feature 39 investment-ready projects from all industries in both the private and public sectors.

“This year, the format is made up of a mix of plenaries and breakout segments, which will cover the relevant topics and in-depth perspectives on how to set up investment projects in Jamaica. You will also hear more investor testimonials and learn about the ins and out of navigating the environment in the various sectors. Investors will be equipped with the information they need to make immediate business decisions.”

“We have confirmed close to 40 speakers to lead these industry discussions so far and I am happy to announce that the Prime Minister of Jamaica, Andrew Holness is leading the discourse on how to invest in Jamaica. The Prime Minister is our confirmed keynote speaker for JIF 2018, said JAMPRO boss Diane Edwards.
Since the last JIF in 2015, JAMPRO team has achieved over US$300 million in investments and created over 7,000 new jobs.

Edwards declared that all too often Jamaica is equated with sun sea, music and entertainment and that its investment prospects go by unrecognized. She said that the country is determined to correct that and to spread the word that Jamaica is open for business in many areas.

JAMPRO’s global media partner this year is the Business Year, an international magazine dedicated to sharing Jamaican business stories. The Business Year Jamaica 2018 publication will be launched
at the conference in June.
