Strengthening Fiscal Policy and Management Programme to Respond to the Public Health Crisis and Economic Effects of COVID-19 in Jamaica

The objective of the programme is to strengthen the efficiency, efficacy and equity of Jamaica's fiscal policy and management to address the health crisis and economic consequences of COVID-19, through the design and implementation of effective and fiscally responsible policy measures. Specific objectives include: (i) ensure timely availability of public resources to address the health emergency caused by COVID-19; (ii) strengthen the counter-cyclical role of fiscal policy through the temporary protection of employment and income of vulnerable households during the health and economic crisis; (iii) support the effective and continuous provision of essential goods and services through fiscal policy and management measures; and (iv) promote economic and fiscal recovery.
