Unemployment in Jamaica

Jamaica Unemployment | Economic News & Forecasts

Jamaica - Unemployment

Although economic growth slowed somewhat in the third quarter, the pace of expansion was still one of the highest in recent years. The mining and quarrying sector chiefly buttressed the economy, benefiting from the reopening of the Alpart refinery. Strong growth in the sector offset small contractions and moderations in other sectors. Notably, growth in the agricultural sector was flat. More positively, both short-term and long-term tourist arrivals are up in the January-October period compared to the same time a year prior; short-term arrivals, however, decreased in Q3.
