General Information

The Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation was created in 2016 with the change in political administration. We are tasked with drafting the blueprint to drive Jamaica's economic growth and sustainable development. Our seven critical portfolio areas are land, environment, climate change, investment, water and water waste, and housing and works.

Under our portfolio areas, we oversee some 48 agencies, departments and divisions responsible for approximately 68 subject areas. Our functions include formulating and implementing policies relating to these subject areas. We aid in monitoring adherence to the policies and ensuring that these entities' operations follow the government's guidelines and regulations.

The political directorate of the ministry is headed by the Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, O. N., M. P. He is supported by two ministers without portfolio, Hon. Karl Samuda, CD, M.P and Hon. Daryl Vaz M. P. in the ministries of Water, Housing and Works, and Land, The Environment, Climate Change, and Investment, respectively. The Hon. C. Everald Warmington has been appointed Minister of State in the works portfolio. Permanent Secretary Mrs Audrey Sewell J. P. heads the executive management team at the ministry. The team also comprises the Director General, Dr Sharon Crooks, assigned to the Land, Environment, Climate Change, and Investment portfolios.

Additionally, two Chief Technical Directors support the Director General in the Land, Environment and Climate Change portfolio. Mrs Doreen Prendergast directly supports the Permanent Secretary for the Water, Housing and Works portfolios. Additionally, support in the Investment portfolio is presented to the Director General by Mr Omar Chedda, the Director of Investment.

Our two primary locations of operation are The Towers, 25 Dominica Drive, Kingston 5 and 16a Half Way Tree Road, Kingston 5. We also have divisional branches and agencies throughout the corporate area and island-wide.
