The report quotes several key figures including the president of Jamaica Promotions Corporation (Jampro), Diane Edwards; Minister of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries Audley Shaw and Minister of Tourism Edmund Bartlett, who all gave their insights into the factors which have led to an improved business environment in Jamaica.
