Keith Duncan, co-chairman of Jamaica’s Economic Programme Oversight Committee (EPOC) and Group Chief Executive Officer of JMMB, thinks the island is moving in the right direction and ready for its transition from the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

And he delves into the details in Sunday’s episode of ‘The Conversation’ with George Davis.

Duncan surmises that the ‘bitter medicine of the past’ was necessary to get us to where we are today and on the path to more financial liberty. This as the island is expected to end its arrangement with the IMF in December 2019.

Meanwhile, Duncan asserts the emphasis should now be on growth, emphasizing that Jamaica can't afford to lag behind on the crucial marijuana industry.

He stressed: "We must get ourselves organized around ganja!"
