JAMAICA'S three most powerful private sector lobby groups yesterday requested an urgent meeting with the leadership of both the Government and Opposition in order to address concerns and review the issues surrounding the Opposition's vote to end the states of public emergency (SOE).
The call from the Jamaica Manufacturers and Exporters Association (JMEA), Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica (PSOJ), and Jamaica Chamber of Commerce (JCC) came amidst growing public disappointment and anger at the position taken by the Opposition People's National Party (PNP) that will result in the anti-crime measure coming to a halt on January 2 in St Catherine North; January 7 in sections of the Corporate Area; and January 31 in St James.
