The People’s National Party has promised to update the nation on critical matters affecting the economy, including the status of negotiations with the International Monetary Fund (IMF), at the end of its 3-day Cabinet Retreat which is now underway.

Party Chairman Robert Pickersgill has acknowledged that the PNP is aware of the concerns related to the ongoing negotiations with the IMF.

He said the Cabinet Retreat will be used to review the state of those discussions and the pre and post action requirements related to an agreement.

Meanwhile, the PNP chairman has also sought to assure that the government’s team of negotiators is seeking to get the best deal which will positively benefit citizens and the economy.

However, he said regardless of the negotiations with the IMF, Jamaica must own and direct its economic growth and development.
