“Jamaica, the place of choice to live, work, raise families, and do business.”

Vision 2030 Jamaica – National Development Plan outlines steps that Jamaica must take to become a developed country by the year 2030. The plan is being implemented through three-yearly Medium Term Socio-Economic Policy Frameworks (MTFs) which help to track the nation’s progress. Two (2) sets of MTFs have been implemented since 2009, and the third set of MTFs is scheduled for the period 2015-2018.

Each MTF outlines the areas of priority for the period and the recommended strategies for the responsible agencies to execute to meet the related targets. The National Priorities identified for 2015-2018 are in the areas of:

  1. National Security and Justice
  2. Education and Training
  3. Early Childhood Development, Family Structures and Parenting
  4. Unemployment, Economic Growth and Tax Reform
  5. Natural Environment, Waste Management and Climate Change
  6. Poverty and Social Protection
  7. Health Care

By focusing on these areas and implementing the recommended strategies and measures, Jamaica should be on its way to being a safer, more prosperous and productive country.
