JAMPRO is reporting that the 20 companies participating in the Export Max Two programme, which culminated in 2017, have since generated $1.7 billion in export earnings.
Manager for JAMPRO's Sales Support Unit, Ricardo Durrant, says this represents a growth in sales averaging 213 per cent. He also said 173 new jobs were created from the entities' engagements, representing a 13 per cent increase.
Durrant told JIS News that the companies generated $703 million in new investments, with 14 benefitting from a productivity improvement initiative and five securing contract manufacturing opportunities.
In addition, the Export Max Two enterprises have acquired at least one new external market, spanning the Caribbean, US, Canada, and United Kingdom.
