JAMPRO’s President Diane Edwards said that Global Business Connect will generate investment and trade/export enquiries that the agency will work at converting into leads and viable business projects.

“Global Business Connect is the interactive heart of our website and online communications and will engage investors, senior executives, decision-makers, researchers and key influencers locally and internationally,” Edwards noted.

She was speaking at the recent launch held at JAMPRO’s head offices in New Kingston.
