Sustaining the Jamaican Economy Amidst COVID-19" - Online/Digital Forum - Wed. April 8, 2020

Jamaica and many other countries have been negatively affected by the coronavirus, COVID-19. The impact of this virus has had unprecedented and far-reaching effects globally. Subsequently, the impact of COVID-19, has caused much anxiety among businesses and the wider population, and it is therefore crucial that the public and private sector work together in mitigating its impact. 

As a border and trade facilitation entity, and a crucial link in the supply chain, the JCA is committed to ensuring that trade continues, so that the wheels of our economy continue to turn, in the midst of this crisis.  

It is in this respect, that the JCA in collaboration with several private sector entities (Courier Assoc., JCC, JMEA, SAJ, KWL, KFTL, JSCB, CBFFAJ etc.) will be hosting an Online Forum in which, as public/private sector we would seek to: 

  • Reassure the public that business/manufacturing/services continue
  • State our business continuity efforts
  • Indicate recovery plans/mechanisms post COVID-19. 
  • Provide information or give clarity, where required

We recognise the stifling effect COVID-19 can have on our economy, and as key players, we must especially at this time, remind Jamaicans that we are on the same path - that of sustaining the Jamaican economy.

Date/Time: Wednesday, April 8, 10:30 a.m. to 12 noon 

Live at:, on JNN, Gleaner Online Platforms and Nationwide 90FM
