THE EDITOR, Sir:
Having read the lead story 'Jamaica restores name' (Gleaner, October 17, 2013) on the increased confidence Jamaica currently enjoys in the international financial markets, according to the director general of the Planning Institute of Jamaica, Mr Colin Bullock, we can cautiously applaud Finance Minister Dr Peter Phillips and his hard-working team for taking Jamaica away from a path very similar to the Greece scenario.
Although we are far from out of the woods regarding the austerity measures implemented by the International Monetary Fund, it is clear that the Government is on a determined drive to meet its performance targets and to reduce its debt this time around.
Good news for us all to pat ourselves on the back. Better must come.
