JMA wants to fast-track implementation of the Integrity Commission Act

Jamaica Manufacturers’ Association | 2014-03-18 00:00:00

The Jamaica Manufacturers’ Association (JMA) supports the National Integrity Action’s call to fast-track the passage of the Integrity Commission Act. This is a positive move to secure the integrity of our country, as government officials must be held accountable for their actions and the proposed Single Anti-Corruption Authority will assist in establishing good governance.

According to the Transparency International 2013 Corruption Perceptions Index, which measures perceived levels of public sector corruption, Jamaica scored 38, with 0 being highly corrupt and 100, being very clean.  It is imperative for Jamaica to address issues of corruption, not just through the passing of this bill but through execution. We need to reverse the trend of implementation deficits and move expeditiously to reduce the level of corruption. 

The implementation and enforcement of the Integrity Commission Act will demonstrate the commitment of our parliamentarians in eliminating corruption, rebuilding trust and ensuring transparency, accountability and responsible leadership.
