All play and no work, means no money to play! Doing business in Kingston is relatively easy and there are several government and private sector bodies that can readily assist.  

Kingston as capital city is the seat of Government and the economic base of Jamaica.

Jamaica has a diverse and open economy and offers a range of benefits through our membership in the Caribbean Single market (CARICOM) and similar trade agreements.  

Kingston is well positioned as an investment location with the Port of Kingston currently being expanded to offer a world class logistics hub. As the largest English speaking city south of Miami, with competitively priced labour, access to an educated workforce with two of the countrys' largest universities based in Kingston, an expansive telecommunications network, proximity to mainland USA and Latin America and many supporting organizations, investing in Kingston has clear advantages..

Foremost amongst them are The Private Sector Organization of Jamaica, The Jamaica Chamber of 

Commerce, The Jamaica Hotel & Tourist Association, The Jamaica Exporters Association, The Jamaica Manufacturers Association and the American Chamber of Commerce.

The Jamaica Promotions Company (JAMPRO) is also a good starting point for persons seeking to invest in Jamaica.  

Jamaica operates an investor friendly environment with both fiscal and market incentives available for specific industries.  The city is like a cross roads and has been home to many regional and international conferences. With local hotels offering large meeting and conference spaces coupled 

with facilities such as The Jamaica Conference Centre and other off-site venue s such as the National Arena and in-door Sports centre, there are many options to "Meet in Kingston"

Kingston is also home to many multi-national organizations, embassies, high commissions and consulates. A visit to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website will give you a full listing.
