THE EDITOR, Sir:
As I am hearing the various complaints against one of Jamaica's most steadfast investors, Digicel, I would like to make the point that all companies have to ensure that they remain profitable so that they can continue to employ Jamaicans and provide a good service.
Since Digicel came to Jamaica, even the boys that push handcart can afford a cellphone. But not only that, Digicel gives millions of dollars to help build Jamaica. The company just donated $1 million to the Jamaica Constabulary Force for some special equipment and another couple millions to some community development projects in St Mary, St Thomas, Manchester and a lot of other parishes.
More people need to wake up and look at the bigger picture. Where would Jamaica be now if Digicel had instead decided to invest in another country?
