Jamaica's election uncertainty could put IMF program at risk, says report

Dec 30, 2015 | Caribbean, NEWS | 0 comments

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) says the Extended Fund Facility programme with Jamaica is facing several risks, including uncertainty around the next General Election. The IMF’s latest report on Jamaica says maintaining social consensus for the government’s reform agenda is one of the risks facing the programme. It also says that maintaining desired social consensus hinges on achieving faster growth, greater job creation and steadily improving living standards. The IMF warns that election-related uncertainty could also create market volatility and slow the momentum for reform.
