There is an abundance of positives taking place across Jamaica and the diaspora. Impacting Jamaica is an initiative to provide exposure to positive happenings, acts of kindness, activities and investments positively benefiting communities at every level, across every sector – to inspire, motivate and excite people everywhere.
As part of the observation of Jamaica’s independence celebrations, Impacting Jamaica, a podcast series, launched The Independence Edition in July 2021 to spotlight a menu of the country’s successes since 1962.
The micro, small and medium-sized enterprise (MSME) sector is a key driver for economic growth. All around the world, and it is the same for Jamaica, the MSME sector is a major engine of growth.
Typically, MSMEs account for more than 90 per cent of all firms, 60 per cent of employment and between 40 per cent and 60 per cent of output in most economies.
