Jamaica GDP Growth Rate

Jamaica, a small island nation situated in a strategic position near the Panama Canal, and one of the slowest growing economy in the Caribbean. Services, with tourism employing 10 percent of the population, is the most important sector of the economy and accounts for around 60 percent of GDP. Jamaica’s large shadow economy and lax tax regulations have translated into persistent fiscal deficits and heavy dependence on remittances. Bureaucracy, high energy costs and a slow, inefficient legal system are hampering foreign direct investments and private initiative. High unemployment and drug related crime are also issues that need to be addressed.
