Published:Friday | November 13, 2015 | 11:29 PM

The Jamaican Government and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) have concluded that the country’s economic performance continues to be positive, despite lower than anticipated growth.

They say all quantitative targets and structural benchmarks for the quarter ending in September have been met.

The IMF Board is scheduled to consider the 10th review under Jamaica’s Extended Fund Facility Programme in December.

Board approval will allow for the release of approximately US$39 million to Jamaica.
