Minister of Finance in Europe for Talks with Financial Institutions


Minister of Finance and Planning, Dr. the Hon. Peter Phillips, is leading a delegation in Europe, where he is slated to engage in a series of meetings with financial institutions.

The talks are intended to apprise agents in the international capital markets of developments on the government’s economic reform programme and the growth agenda.

This was disclosed by Minister with responsibility for Information, Senator the Hon. Sandrea Falconer, at a Jamaica House press briefing, held at the Office of the Prime Minister on June 6.

Miss Falconer said the meetings will involve, primarily, representatives from investment banks, pension funds and insurance companies.

“Discussions will include the four-year Extended Fund Facility with the International Monetary Fund (IMF). The team will also articulate the macro-economic and fiscal path that Jamaica intends to pursue in order to realise economic growth and development,” she said.

Minister Phillips is accompanied by Bank of Jamaica Governor, Brian Wynter; Financial Secretary, Devon Rowe; Senior Director, Debt Management, Pamela McLaren; and Technical Advisor to the Minister, Helen McIntosh.
