Jamaica, Singapore Partnering on Special Economic Zone
Jamaica and Singapore are partnering on the development of a special economic zone in Jamaica, according to Prime Minister Andrew Holness.
Holness met last week with Daniel Seah, deputy director of the Singapore Cooperation Enterprise and representatives from the Special Economic Zone Authority to discuss the partnership.
Holness said the “development of the SEZ will greatly impact Jamaica’s economic development as all Jamaicans should benefit from the Zone.”
Many Caribbean thought leaders have long called for the region to look more to Singapore as the model for small-island economic development.
