Call for Papers: GIP Research Report 2021

The Growth Inducement Programme (GIP) of the Planning Institute of Jamaica (PIOJ) hereby invites persons who plan to or have already undertaken or commissioned research, consistent with those outlined in the attached Research Agenda, to take advantage of the opportunity to participate in our Research Report that will be featured at our third annual Economic Growth Forum in 2021.

The GIP has crafted a Research Agenda (see Appendix 1) consistent with its mandate to promote sustainable and inclusive economic growth for Jamaica through research, policy development, technical support and coordination of growth initiatives. Topics relate to the extant matters of MSME development; Intellectual Property; Climate Change; Asset Development; Big Data and International Competitiveness that require further study to inform Jamaica’s development.

The GIP seeks to create a facilitative space to share innovative research on challenges, opportunities and solutions for growth in the Jamaican economy. Select summarized papers will be included in the GIP Research Report 2021 that will be published across varied media and featured at the 2021 Economic Growth Forum.
