Jamaica's economy experienced 18 consecutive quarters of growth - Holness

Prime Minister Andrew Holness has said the local economy has been experiencing consistent growth for almost 18 consecutive quarters.
 
Speaking to participants at the Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation's Strategic Leadership Retreat at Moon Palace in Ocho Rios, St. Ann on Thursday, Mr. Holness said Jamaica is seeing a return to sustainable periods of significant economic growth.
 
For the 2018 calendar year, the economy grew by 1.9 per cent.
 
The Prime Minister argued that if the economy continues to maintain this level of growth and achieves two per cent growth, then Jamaica will be on a trajectory to its true growth potential, which is about five per cent.
