Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica is a national organisation of private sector associations, companies and individuals working together since 1976 to promote a competitive and productive private sector.
The organisation seeks to influence national policy issues of a political, social, or economic nature. The Executive Committee, under guidance from the Council, leads this process by promoting discussions with the country’s government, political directorate and the opposition. The Organisation is also in close and constant contact with the major multi-lateral and bi-lateral agencies. One of the primary mandates of the PSOJ is advocacy. The proactive participation of members, through a number of committees, impacts directly on the development of the private sector. The PSOJ continues to make meaningful representation on behalf of the private sector to ensure that its presence and strong voice are always maintained.
Areas of Emphasis
JAMP received initial seed funding in 2019 from eight (8) private sector sponsors, namely, National Baking Company, Victoria Mutual Group, GB Group (Texaco), ICD Group, Sagicor Group, Jamaica Broilers Group of Companies, JN Bank, WISYNCO as well as a donation from the JMMB Joan Duncan Foundation.
The Jamaica Accountability Meter Portal project was awarded a 36 month grant by the European Union as part of their continued commitment to the development of Jamaica and its people. Funding began in June 2019 and will run through to June 2022.
We invite members of the public to donate towards JAMP’s continued work and the continued sustainability of the effort.
JAMP wants to acknowledge and thank the nine private sector entities that generously contributed seed funding to take JAMP from concept to reality.
