Jamaica: The Impact of COVID-19 on GDP

The Impact of COVID-19 on GDP – There is a warning coming from the private sector that if we are not disciplined as a people, the recovery of the economy will be jeopardized and it will be the average workers and micro and small businesses that are the most vulnerable. With increased infections threatening to cripple the productive sector, just how does the business community think we can successfully navigate the second wave of COVID-19?

To discuss the approach, the impact of COVID-19 on GDP and more, we are joined by Keith Duncan President of the Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica (PSOJ), and Co-Chair of the Economic Programme Oversight Committee and John Mahfood Vice President of the Jamaica Manufacturers and Exporters Association ( JMEA) Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer of Jamaican Teas Limited.
