The Economic Growth Council
The Economic Growth Council was appointed by the Prime Minister the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, to consult and advise the Cabinet on policies and reforms that would facilitate economic growth.
One of the Growth initiatives recommended to the Government and set out in the Economic Growth Council’s Call to Action is “Harness the Power of the Diaspora”, which is a very powerful reservoir of capital, relationships, skills and expertise that remains largely untapped.
