One focus of this new thrust will be on engaging youth entrepreneurship by introducing entrepreneurship right throughout the education system.
In September 2014, Entrepreneurship was introduced to the syllabus at the CAPE level in Jamaican high schools. Entrepreneurship programmes are progressively being offered by our local tertiary institutions, while the 4 H Clubs lead the charge at the primary and lower levels at high school.
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.
