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.
