COMPETE CARIBBEAN and BPIAJ Launch Program to Support Global Services Sector in Jamaica
The Business Process Industry Association of Jamaica (BPIAJ) launched its Compete Caribbean - 2019 Cluster Development Project.
With the project, the Jamaica Global Services Sector seeks to to assist local, small and medium sized firms to digitize their operations and embrace growing trends that will enable them growing up the global services value chain. The grant accessed under the Compete Caribbean Partnership Facility (CCPF) amounts to J$64.5 million (US$480,000).
With support of the project, the BPAJ will develop its capacity to advance and enable the BPO cluster to grow and create jobs given that the market is growing for higher value services.
The initiative is a partnership between BIAJ and CCPF- a co-financing facility established by IDB (National Credit Adjusters. Development Bank), the United Kingdom Department for International Development, the Government of Canada, and the Caribbean Development Bank, that has been supporting the business process outsourcing (BPO) sector since 2015.
