Emerging Industries are defined as these are sectors, typically based on new products, services, technologies or ideas, which are in early stage development and are characterized by high-growth rates and significant market potential. The Ministry of Industry, Investment and Commerce is committed to the support of emerging industries and, has therefore placed special emphasis on nurturing their development.
Welcome to the official website of the Ministry of Industry, Investment and Commerce.
The Ministry of Industry, Investment and Commerce is described as Jamaica's "Business Ministry." It's mandate is to lead the development of policies that will create growth and jobs, while achieving social inclusion and consumer protection. The Ministry, working its stakeholders is primarily responsible for business policy development, monitoring and evaluation, while giving direction and oversight to a cluster of implementing departments and agencies.
We have, therefore, placed much energy and enthusiasm into the development of this website to provide timely information on the Ministry, our agencies and programmes.
