Third phase of Export Max launched



As the Agency aims to increase the export of nontraditional products and support the development of Jamaican MSMEs, JAMPRO, in partnership with the Jamaica Manufacturers and Exporters’ Association (JMEA) and the Jamaica Business Development Corporation (JBDC), launched the third installment of the Agency’s flagship export development programme, Export Max on November 29, 2018.

 

Export Max III is a 3-year programme geared towards providing focused capacity building, advocacy and market penetration support to 50 exporters and export ready firms. The goal of the programme is to enable the companies to be competitively positioned to take advantage of market opportunities, and ultimately make a greater contribution to the overall performance of the Jamaican economy.

 

Export Max II will aim to identify specific needs of the target companies to improve business performance, improve the overall management and operations of the companies, and increase export market penetration and export sales of the participating companies. The end result should be a significant impact on Jamaica’s national export performance.

 

Special presentations were made by The Honourable Audley Shaw, CD, MP., Minister of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries, Diane Edwards, President of JAMPRO, Ms. Valerie Veira, Chief Executive Officer, Jamaica Business Development Corporation and Mr. Metry Seaga, President, Jamaica Manufacturers & Exporters’ Association.
