Tops region in index

By the Caribbean Journal staff

What’s the most entrepreneurial country in the Caribbean?

It’s Jamaica, according to the Approved Index, which examined entrepreneurship in more than 100 countries using findings from the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor.

Entrepreneurship is defined as the “percentage of an adult population who own (or co-own) a new business and has paid salaries or wages for at least 3 months.”

In fact, Jamaica ranks seventh among all countries in the world, topped by Angola and followed by Bostwana.

Among the other Caribbean countries, Suriname was the world’s least entrepreneurial country, while Puerto Rico was the world’s second-least entrepreneurial country (or territory).
