As the Jamaican Government seeks to increase its trade and investment promotion efforts internationally, JAMPRO and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAFT) have officially signed an MOU to formalise their collaboration in this area, through the Economic Diplomacy Programme (EDP).

The Programme is designed to enhance Jamaica’s international visibility as a destination for business. It includes marketing and engagement activities undertaken by JAMPRO and MFAFT’s Diplomatic Missions and Consular Posts (DMCPs) to unearth business opportunities that will generate foreign direct investments and drive exports from Jamaica.

Over 85 DMCPs across Asia, Africa, North America, the Caribbean, Europe and Central and South America have already been engaged through the EDP.  

President of JAMPRO, Diane Edwards, shared that the collaboration with MFAFT has been fruitful thus far and has created meaningful relationships with international investors.
