    During the 5th World Conference of Trade Promotion Organizations in 2004, the Jamaica Promotions Corporation, under the leadership of Ms Francis, was one of six TPOs to receive an international award for its achievements in raising exports. JAMPRO received the Best TPO from a Small Country award. As part of the country's public sector modernization programme, a streamlined JAMPRO focused on increasing export competitiveness.

    The mission of JAMPRO is to facilitate trade and investment to increase benefi ts for the country and the people of Jamaica. Under Ms Francis' direction, Jamaica's investment has increased from US$ 45 million to peak at US$ 670 million. JAMPRO has designed and implemented several trade development support programmes for the private sector, which have won recognition from the Canadian International Development Agency and the European Union. Jamaica was also the benefactor of a € 20 million fi nance package for a private sector support project which commenced in 2004.
