The portfolio areas of this Ministry – Science, Energy and Technology (SET) are key sectors that have the potential to fuel growth and further develop Jamaica’s economy.
While our Energy and Technology portfolios are mature in their own right, there remains significant opportunity for greater levels of innovation and development, particularly as it relates to the utilisation of indigenous resources.
As we move to attract increased investment in Science, Energy and Technology and encourage greater entrepreneurial interest in these areas, I am resolute in my commitment to the development of all the SET portfolio areas. More particularly, to the advancement of appropriate policies and legislation that ensure equity, sustainability and growth.
Under my leadership, MSET will be the driving force that propels Jamaica’s transition into a world-class society through innovation in its portfolio areas of Science, Energy and Technology, thereby creating avenues for employment and national development that ultimately Fuel Growth.
