The Leader of the Parliamentary Opposition, Dr. Peter Phillips, says in order for Jamaica to capitalize on its wealth and resources, the Jamaica Stock Exchange (JSE) should be the avenue to boost the economy.

Dr. Peter Phillips says the JSE is a key economic growth factor that should play a pivotal role in the transformation of the economy.

He further added that the JSE acts as a key component to any policy that it pursues and this trading avenue will be installed when the PNP forms the next government.

Dr. Phillips made his comments while speaking at the opening of the Jamaica Social Stock Exchange. He says this  trading platform will give to both small and micro businesses the boost they need to help in growing the economy.
