WHY A NATIONAL EXPORT STRATEGY

The National Export Strategy (NES) is a collaborative national strategy driven by stakeholders in the private and public sector which seeks to maximize the export sector’s direct contribution to economic and social development by focusing on market-driven interventions in a select number of priority sectors and cross-cutting areas.


Priority Sectors Cross Cutting Areas
Agro-Processing/ Agribusiness Capacity Building (incl. Packaging and Labelling)
Film and Animation Export Financing
Information Technology Enabled Services (ITES) Logistics (incl. Supply Chain Management)
Manufacturing Market Access and Trade Information
Mining Standards and Quality Management

The strategy is being developed under the leadership of the Ministry of Industry, Investment & Commerce, alongside key implementation partners JAMPRO, the Jamaica Exporters Association and the Jamaica Trade Board, with support from the Commonwealth Secretariat.

Implemented as part of Vision 2030, and incorporating all relevant stakeholders from the planning to the implementation stages, the goal of the NES is to improve Jamaica’s export performance by advancing the competitiveness of firms and sectors while enhancing the business and trade environment.
