IMF Watch: Agro Parked: NEPA Issues Stop Order On Amity Hall Farm For Breaches

Peter Knight

The Memorandum of Economic and Financial Policies ‘IMF programme’ outlines various strategic investments which the Government of Jamaica is committed to implementing. One such endeavour is through partnership with the private sector to establish nine Agro Parks by the end of FY 2014/2015. The aim of this investment will be to stabilise the agricultural supply chain, deepen inter-industry linkages, increase competitive import substitution and activate unutilised rural land and labour (MEFP ¶17).
