The competitiveness and profitability of Jamaican businesses are dependent both on the internal capacities of such entities, and on the existence of an enabling environment that allows private firms to operate efficiently. An enabling business environment and stable macroeconomic climate and are among the most critical pre-requisites of business success. These are, however, also areas in which the Jamaican economy has consistently struggled in its recent past. It is in this context that the 2012 Donor Matrix (DMX) and Private Sector Assessment Report (PSAR) for Jamaica have been prepared. The preparation of these reports represents an initial step in the development of comprehensive and cohesive private sector development (PSD) policies for the country around which donors, government agencies and private sector stakeholders can unite.
