FLOW Jamaica has welcomed the ban on copper export.

In a statement to our news centre, Garry Sinclair, Country Manager & President, Cable and Wireless Caribbean says the theft of copper is a national security issue which has far-reaching impact outside of the telecoms industry. 

Sinclair says the ongoing theft and vandalism of telecommunications infrastructure severely impacts the country’s economy and compromises the security of all Jamaicans.

He points out that FLOW has suffered an estimated J$300 million in losses as a result of these illicit activities.

Sinclair says FLOW commended the Government and the Jamaica Constabulary Force for supporting the industry in its attempt to stamp out this scourge on the Jamaican people and on the economy.
