The latest Jamaica Chamber of Commerce Business and Consumer Confidence report shows a decline in business confidence.
The survey was for the fourth quarter of 2019.
Managing Director of Market Research Services, Don Anderson, noted that recent surveys indicated that business confidence was waning. He also said that business confidence was down in all the areas covered by the survey.
Meanwhile, Economist and Opposition Senator Dr. Andrew Haughton, has criticised the Statistical Institute of Jamaica (STATIN) for the method used to gain data for unemployment figures.
According to Dr. Haughton, who was speaking Tuesday on Power 106, the method is flawed and should be revisited.
