Jamaica is implementing an economic reform program that has been supported by the IMF's Extended Fund Facility since May 2013. Significant strides have been made in restoring macroeconomic stability, pursuing prudent fiscal policy, reducing public debt and undertaking significant reforms in tax policy, financial sector resilience, and structural issues. Meanwhile, in the February 25 general elections, the Jamaica Labor Party (JLP) narrowly won, defeating the incumbent People's National Party (PNP).
