Jamaica earned 5.5 percent less from exports during the January to March quarter, according to the Statistical Institute of Jamaica (STATIN).
The report noted that this was due largely to a 57.8 percent decline in exports from the mining & quarrying sector.
In total, the country earned US$290.5 million from exports during the quarter, with domestic exports accounting for 85.3 percent of that.
