“The JPC will work with 50 export-ready firms over the next three years under the JAMPRO Export Max III programme. The objective is to build their capacity and productivity skills,” she noted.

Export Max III is geared towards providing focused capacity-building, advocacy and market penetration support to exporters and export-ready firms.

The goal of the programme is to enable the companies to be competitively positioned to take advantage of market opportunities, to increase the export of non-traditional products and support the development of Jamaican MSMEs.

JAMPRO, in partnership with the Jamaica Manufacturers and Exporters’ Association (JMEA) and the Jamaica Business Development Corporation (JBDC), launched the third instalment of the export development programme in November 2018.
