Jamaica private sector urged to use EU trade support

Jamaica's Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller, is encouraging private sector organisations to make greater use of the European Union (EU)-funded facilities for trade improvement through the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA). She made the call while addressing a signing ceremony for J$2.3 billion (€17.7 million) in budgetary support from the EU at Jamaica House yesterday. The EPA is aimed at promoting trade between Europe and CARIFORUM and to boost the countries’ economies. Included is financial support from the EU to help Caribbean governments implement the accord, and for businesses to use the EPA to increase exports and attract more investment. The Prime Minister stressed the Government’s commitment to “doing all we can to improve the opportunities for increased trade participation by Jamaican companies.”  She noted that through the support of the EU, the Government has made great gains in improving the business environment, increasing competitiveness and removing barriers to trade. She also cited the EU’s support in upgrading Jamaica’s public food facilities in order to make them compliant with internationally recognised safety standards.
