In the light of Bloomberg’s favorable report on Jamaica stock market performance, Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holnes has commended the Jamaica Stock Exchange (JSE) for its achievement on being declared the Best Performing Stock Market globally in 2018 by the publication Businessweek.
The Prime Minister, while speaking at the JSE’s 14th Regional Investments and Capital Markets conference recently, noted that the JSE performance “reflects the buoyancy and growing confidence in the Jamaican economy.”
He also noted that the JSE “continues to send the signal that our investment community has the appetite, but, more importantly, it has the cash to invest.”
He further said, “I am particularly happy when Jamaica is recognized for its business enterprise. That kind of publicity is absolutely important in portraying our country as a place where serious business is taking place,” the Prime Minister said.
Mr. Holness noted that the JSE has continued to distinguish itself over the years and argued that its performance puts Jamaica in pole position globally as well as augurs well for the future of the country.
“Hopefully, we will see more delegations of investors coming to Jamaica to see what we are doing, and carrying the news even farther afield so that more investments can come into our country,” he said.
