Jamaica

     日本語

Jamaica

The Jamaican economy is supported by tourism, mining (bauxite and aluminum), remittance from migrants residing overseas, and the export of traditional products such as sugar and bananas. The GNI per capita of Jamaica is US$ 4,990 (2018, World Bank), and the country is classified as a upper middle income country. However, the economic infrastructure is generally vulnerable, as most foods and energy depend on import. Furthermore, Jamaica is heavily impacted by external factors such as the partner countries' economic conditions and trends in international market prices for exporting commodities, and also is susceptible to hurricanes and other natural disasters. JICA's cooperation to Jamaica focuses on: 1) disaster risk management and the environment, and 2) disparity reduction.
