Jamaica is more than the “3rd Coolest Country in the World” (according to cable news network, CNN). The island has a growing business sophistication as a small island developing state with great possibilities for trade and inward investment. This makes Jamaica a destination of choice for discerning investors and businesspeople. 

Strategically located at the gateway of the major air and sea routes into the Caribbean, Jamaica is within easy reach of major global markets, with over half a billion of the world’s population living within a four-hour flight radius. The island also has the largest English-speaking workforce in the Caribbean, which is known globally for its creative and enterprising spirit.
