Jampro looking for new investment projects to promote

The Jamaica Promotions Corporation (Jampro) is seeking new investment projects across 12 sectors to promote local and international investment. 

Jampro is seeking projects in agribusiness, outsourcing, manufacturing, energy, mining, film, animation, music, tourism and services, logistics, infrastructure, and cannabis. 

It has identified these key sectors as part of its overall strategy for Jamaica’s economic growth based on projections that these industries will have the most significant impact on Jamaica’s economic expansion.

Jampro's president, Diane Edwards, said that the agency believed that many untapped business opportunities in Jamaica could lead to increased jobs and dollars in the economy in the forms of export sales and investment spending. 

She invited entrepreneurs, companies and other entities to submit their projects to Jampro to be evaluated and packaged to be promoted. 

Speaking at Jampro’s “Call for Projects” event in Kingston earlier this week, Edwards said:  “Jampro is here to promote Jamaican business opportunities, whether export or investment, to local and international audiences.  We want to have those amazing, diverse projects that will impress investors and create more business and jobs for Jamaican people. We are therefore inviting those persons and companies with viable projects to contact Jampro, so we can work and collaborate to attract more investments to Jamaica.”

Jampro is welcoming interested parties to submit their projects at   http://www.jamaicatradeandinvest.org/forms/submit-project or contact JAMPRO at info@jamprocorp.com to get more information on the project submission process.
