This export development model for Jamaica initiates a system that progressively identifies appropriate, exportable products and services and creates market volume mainly through creative distribution to the Caribbean Diaspora. This model proposes a continuous supply chain identifying ways to create wealth for the country and helping to solve economic hardships without excessively burdening the government for investment capital. The development of large modern farms and factories, along with the establishment of efficient collection and processing stations, ensures reliability of exports that are sustainable and can be competitive in price and quality against similar products in the marketplace. The creation of a guaranteed market completes the ideal cycle. A full analysis of the various recommendations and timely implementation of the plan is expected to help Jamaica achieve its economic objectives.
