Jamaica: Assessing the Recent  IDB Study

IDB Study – What are the challenges being faced by micro, small, and medium enterprises as they navigate the COVID-19 pandemic? How are businesses coping? The ones that are staying afloat are the factors that have contributed to this and how long can they continue to keep their doors open? What about those businesses that have closed?

What were the factors that led to this? How are businesses likely to fare in this unending corona crisis? To discuss the findings of a recent Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) report on COVID-19’s impact on business we are joined by Dr. David Tennant, Author of the study and dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences UWI, and Therese Turner Jones General Manager, Caribbean Country Department of the Inter-American Development Bank.
