KINGSTON---Jamaica is in line to
receive US$40 million from the Inter-
national Monetary Fund (IMF) after
a delegation from the Washington-
based financial institution ended a
two week visit to the island on Fri-
The delegation, headed by Uma
Ramakrishnan, was conducting the
ninth review of Jamaica s IMF-sup-
ported programme under the Extended
Fund Facility (EFF).
In 2013, Jamaica entered into a four
year US$948.1 million EFF agreement
with the IMF and the delegation is
expected to determine whether Jamaica
met all quantitative targets and struc-
tural benchmarks for the review peri-
od.The review follows the announce-
ment that the island s net international
reserves (NIS) stood at US$2.4 billion
at the end of July.
Ramakrishnan said the delegation
reached preliminary agreement with
the authorities on a package of policies
that aims at completing the ninth
review under the EFF.
She said that consideration by the
IMF s Executive Board is tentatively
scheduled for September and that upon
approval, Jamaica would be able to
receive US$40 million.
"A gradual economic recovery is
underway. The growth outlook is
improving, although the drought is
hampering agricultural recovery for the
second year in a row. Growth is now
projected at 1.4 per cent in 2015-16.
"The unemployment rate declined
to 13.2 per cent in April, with strong
employment growth in tourism and in
the business process outsourcing (BPO)
sector. Inflation remained at a historic
low of four per cent in July, in spite
of higher food prices on account of the
drought. International reserves have
continued to increase, standing at
US$2.4 billion at end-July."
Ramakrishnan said programme
implementation remains strong and
that all quantitative performance targets
through end-June were met, with tax
revenues exceeding expectations. Struc-
tural reforms are also broadly on track.
"The recent PetroCaribe liability
management operation is an important
step in reducing Jamaica s public debt.
She said the buyback has immediately
reduced the debt-to-gross domestic
product (GDP) ratio by about 10 per
cent of GDP, and the Net Present Value
(NPV) gain of the transaction is esti-
mated at about US$300 million.
She said this proactive operation will
help keep public debt on a clear down-
ward trajectory, with debt-to-GDP now
projected at 125 per cent by the end of
this fiscal year.
"We welcome the recent wage agree-
ment between the Government of
Jamaica and the Jamaica Confederation
of Trade Unions (JCTU). Improving the
efficiency, quality and cost effectiveness
of the public sector is critical for higher
"Lowering the wage-to-GDP ratio
to the 9 percent target for 2016/17 will
create fiscal space for capital spending,
which will help the government invest
in long-term priorities."
The IMF official said continued
strong implementation of the govern-
ment s growth strategy is essential to
support job creation and boost the
"We welcome the steps taken by the
Electricity Sector Enterprise Team to
lock in lower electricity prices by diver-
sifying sources of energy used for elec-
tricity generation beyond oil," she said,
adding "there is also scope for further
improvements in the business climate.
Ramakrishnan said enhancing access
to credit for small and medium-sized
enterprises will improve financial inclu-
sion and support private investment.
"Financial sector stability is being
strengthened through progress in
implementing the Banking Services Act
and ongoing reforms in the securities
dealers sector. The transition of retail
repos to a trust is nearing completion
and should make this investment more
secure and transparent," the IMF official

"We are delighted to receive this
very positive news," said Nancy

addressing issues of mutual inter-

under which Canada s accounting
profession is uniting. CPA Canada s
legacy bodies were previously

developing the excellent working
relationship that the ICAEC estab-
lished over the years with the lega-
cy bodies," said Frank Myers,
ICAEC President in a formal letter
to CPA Canada.
That sentiment was echoed by
Erwin Southwell, Vice President,
IAEC, on behalf of the Council.
CPA Canada is also currently
recognised in T&T and Barbados

Canada s official membership in
Guyana , Jamaica, the Bahamas
and Belize is pending.

accounting profession. The pro-
fession s national body, Chartered

da (CPA Canada), is one of the
largest in the world with more than
190,000 members in Canada and
The Canadian CPA was created
with the unification of three legacy
accounting designations (CA, CGA
and CMA). CPAs are valued for
their financial and tax expertise,
strategic thinking, business insight,
management skills and leadership.
CPA Canada conducts research

issues and supports the setting of

standards for business, not-for-

CPA Canada also issues guid-
ance and thought leadership on a

lishes professional literature and
develops education and profes-
sional certification programmes.
