The quality and reliability of U.S. goods and services have encouraged Jamaican businesses and consumers to purchase from the United States. U.S. businesses have also developed a good reputation for being honest partners. Jamaica has excellent air, sea, and underwater communications cable links with the United States and the rest of the world. Agricultural products, pharmaceuticals/chemicals, and machinery and transportation equipment remain important areas of demand in Jamaica. Opportunities also exist for goods and services associated with the renewable energy, construction, tourism, logistics, and business process outsourcing (BPO) sectors.
