The Private Sector Organization of Jamaica (PSOJ) has made public its strategy to boost business over the next two years.
It includes the removal of impediments to trade.
PSOJ President Keith Duncan noted that trading across borders is difficult for Jamaica as it is too expensive to process items for export and too difficult for manufacturers to import their inputs.
The PSOJ president said although significant progress has been made where tax collection is concerned, there is still more work to be done.
He made the point while highlighting the broader issue of the ease of doing business as another strategic focus for the organization, pointing out that it will focus on how to enhance investments and access to finance for medium and small enterprises as well as other issues.
