Remanufacturing drive begins in Jamaica's Montego Bay
Jamaica's tourism capital, Montego Bay, is moving to diversify its economic base to meet the changing demands of a new globalised economy. Gloria Henry, President of the Montego Bay Chamber of Commerce and Industry said "It's not a shift from the tourism focus. It's a diversification of the economic base. We want to be first in pushing our manufacturing sector towards new growth opportunities in remanufacturing and digital manufacturing, areas we believe that they can compete in." Henry continued, "these don't require a lot of space and a lot of people but require the use of technology and an educated workforce."
