Our Efforts in Jamaica

Catalyste+ has been working in Jamaica for over 20 years, building capacity with the national government, chambers of commerce, associations, institutions and businesses to foster inclusive economic growth. We’ve worked primarily with entrepreneurs in the tourism, manufacturing and agribusiness sectors to enhance competitiveness and export readiness. The Canada-CARICOM Expert Deployment Mechanism (CCEDM) is our program centered on public sector strengthening. Our efforts shape a resilient tourism sector while addressing other socio-economic priorities in the area.
