International banker Aubyn Hill says it will be at least another decade before the large-scale migration of tertiary-level educated Jamaicans is brought under control.
He says major transformations will have to take place in the economy to absorb the some of the brightest minds in Jamaica.
A 2006 World Bank study has found evidence suggesting that roughly 85 per cent of Jamaica's tertiary-level graduates migrate.
Hill is suggesting that technical training be improved to the extent that highly-trained Jamaicans can be exported to available markets across the globe.
These highly-trained graduates, he says, could be brought back under better economic conditions, to use their experience to drive Jamaica’s development.
However, first, he says the Government will have to move to implement critical policies to grow the economy.
