The Jamaica Exporters Association (JEA), says despite the economic challenges, the country’s non-traditional export sector is on the rebound.
JEA President Andrew Collins says the sector is almost back to the levels it was before the start of the global recession.
According to Mr Collins, non-traditional exports saw earnings of US$827 million last year, compared with earnings of US$595 million in 2010.
In 2008, the sector saw earnings of US$949 million.
Mr Collins says this is an indication that there is a global demand for Jamaican products including arts and crafts.
He was speaking at the graduation ceremony for participants in the JEA and St. Andrew Settlement Income Generating project in Kingston on Thursday.
