Jamaica is renowned for many things. From its beautiful beaches to its world famous rum, reggae, and rastas, most people across the globe have heard of the island. But it's not all Red Stripe and soaking up the sunshine. Jamaica has an ever-increasing business community that is growing stronger all the time. Over recent years, as well as remaining a favored tourist hotspot, Montego Bay has become a central hub for telecommunications with endless opportunities for commerce. The bauxite industry is a key component of the Jamaican economy as is agricultural processing and, of course, tourism. A vibrant capital city that is constantly evolving, Kingston is more popular with expats than ever. With a thriving arts and culture scene encompassing everything from film and poetry to dance and painting, there really is something for everyone.
