Work on the fourth Medium Term Socio-Economic Policy Framework (MTF) under the country's long-term National Development Plan – Vision 2030 Jamaica – is scheduled for completion in September.
According to Dr. Wayne Henry, Director General of the Planning Institute of Jamaica (PIOJ), the latest Framework, which covers the period 2018 to 2021, is in the final stages of preparation.
He was speaking at the PIOJ's recent quarterly media briefing at the Institute's head office in New Kingston.
The PIOJ is spearheading the MTF's development.
It facilitates timely implementation of Vision 2030, Jamaica's goals and national outcomes, and is underpinned by an extensive strategic planning and prioritisation process to guide stakeholders.
Vision 2030 Jamaica aims to position the island to achieve developed country status within 12 years and, in the process, make it the place of choice to live, work, raise families and do business.
