The Planning Institute of Jamaica (PIOJ) in its latest review of economic performance has said that the Jamaican economy grew by an estimated 0.3 per cent in the July to September quarter relative to the corresponding quarter of 2018.

Speaking yesterday the PIOJ's quarterly press briefing on the performance of the macroeconomy for the quarter, Director General Dr Wayne Henry said that growth was driven mainly by increases in the finance and insurance services, hotels and restaurants and the manufacturing industries.

“All industries within the Services Industry grew during the quarter. The industries registering the largest growth rates were finance and insurance services at 3.0 per cent; hotels and restaurants by 2.3 per cent and other services by 1.5 per cent,” he said.
