Having almost completed training sessions for the first batch of participants under its Project Amazon initiative, the Jamaica Manufacturers and Exporters Association (JMEA) is looking to extend the programme to other cohorts.
“Through our partnership with the Development Bank of Jamaica (DBJ) and EXIM Bank, we would have expressed interest that this is one of the recurrent programmes that we want to have established in the organisation. Our president has already asked for us to re-engage the partners in order for us to have a second cohort. We’re, therefore, hoping that at least like every six months, we can have the trainings reoccurring. DBJ at the launch had also expressed hope for the project to grow and become one of those long term initiatives,” said JMEA Executive Director Kamesha Blake, responding to queries from the Jamaica Observer yesterday.
