Jamaica National Building Society (JNBS) takes ‘Wealth Creation’ to New York

NEW YORK – Following on the outpouring of support for their country’s growth potential in the global marketplace by members of the Jamaican Diaspora, at the recently concluded Diaspora Conference, in Kingston, the Jamaica National Building Society (JNBS) will be hosting a series of Wealth Creation Roundtables throughout North America to stimulate robust investment in Jamaica.

The first in the series of these roundtables will be held at the Nikki Beach Resort, Midtown New York on Thursday, June 26 at 6:30 p.m.

The JNBS General Manager, Earl Jarrett, will lead a team from the Society to explore investment offerings with Jamaican nationals with keen interest in investment in Jamaica, who are currently residing in New York.

According to Mr. Jarrett, “the Society will explore some of the tremendous opportunities that exist in Jamaica. We will be hosting these roundtables to assist them to appreciate the viable interest to be attained from a myriad of local real estate and other financial projects.”

He stated that, “successive governments have created a wide range of stable physical and financial infrastructure to facilitate further development of our country, and it would be prudent to invest at this time, while the real opportunities exist.”

The JNBS General Manager pointed to the continuous upgrading of the island’s road network, the robust expansion of the tourism product with the concomitant rise in tourist arrivals; as well as, the liberalization and growth in the country’s telecommunications sector as aspects of development that have paved the way for Jamaicans, locally and overseas, to invest.

“All of these developments,” he added, “support the Government’s 2030 Vision to bring Jamaica to first world status and every Jamaican, at home and abroad, should strive to have a stake in the process.”

The Vision 2030 Plan is based on a comprehensive drive to “make Jamaica the place of choice to live, work, raise families, and do business.” And, the guiding principles put ‘people’ at the centre of this transformation. A number of priorities, which include investment, have been identified as critical elements in fulfilling the objectives of the Plan during the next two decades.
