The activity shed light on various developments happening in the Jamaican economy, as well as the island’s growing sectors and industries.

It was part of a trade mission to the Penn Relays, where the aforementioned Export Max companies sold their products and developed relationships with buyers and distributors.

Minister Hill said, “Jamaica’s manufacturers are among the world’s best, and we believe that initiatives like this business luncheon and trade missions to international markets will provide the opportunity to further their reach globally.  Brand Jamaica is in demand, and it is our goal to facilitate more initiatives such as these, as well as increasing support for industries locally, to meet this demand.
