The Jamaica Chamber of Commerce, has pledged its support to the Government to assist in the efforts to reduce crime and violence and also to protect the Jamaican economy throughout the current global economic downturn.
This pledge was made this morning (Dec 12), during a courtesy call at Jamaica House by the new executive of the JCC, led by its President Milton J. Samuda.
The Prime Minister brought the group up to date on several initiatives of the Government, including successfully graduating the largest number of constables in more than 15 years. Mr. Golding said that the fleet of vehicles for the constabulary force was being actively replaced with a goal of complete replacement over a three year period.
The JCC noted with satisfaction that the Legs and Regs project, which seeks to improve the process for approval of construction projects, is a great example of public/private sector collaboration.
The Prime Minister assured the JCC that the Government’s tax reform programme is far advanced and should be ready for implementation by the next fiscal year.
