Jamaican High Commission
Trade & Investment
Jamaica’s economy has a long history of trade and investment, dating back to the days of discovery in the 17th Century, through the sugar and banana years up to the mining and manufacturing period. The evolution has continued with the services and financial sector and creative industries now joining the ranks of valuable investment opportunities…
Jamaica welcomes over a million tourists each year to its shores. Last year, the island set a record of over 3 million visitors, the highest record for any English-speaking Caribbean country. Of particular significance is the number of repeat visitors that make Jamaica a regular holiday destination.
What really makes Jamaica the slice of paradise it is, is the gorgeous, rich culture of those who live here. Learn about our sport, cuisine, traditions, art, language and music and participate in some or all of the events we offer.
