14th Regional Investment & Capital Market Conference -
Minister of Finance, Dr. The Honourable Nigel Clarke, addresses the Jamaica Stock Exchange's 14th Regional Investments & Capital Markets Conference on 'Life after the IMF: Preserving the Benefits from the IMF, Through Sustainable Growth & Development.' Dr. Clarke highlighted that for the first time in decades all economic variables are positively aligned: low, stable and predictable inflation; increased employment with more Jamaicans being employed than ever before; fifteen (15) consecutive quarters of positive growth; and historically high Central Bank reserves. The Finance Minister also stated pointedly that, the Government was committed to institutionalising the gains of the reforms through the establishment of an Independent Fiscal Council to be the arbiter of Jamaica's Fiscal Rules, modernising the Central Bank and making inflation targeting the primary objective of monetary policy and developing the technical capacity of those in charge of crafting policy at the Ministry of Finance, Bank of Jamaica and the Planning Institute of Jamaica.
