The Jamaica Business Development Corporation (JBDC) yesterday signed three additional memoranda of understanding (MOU) with partnering organisations to develop and provide services to the micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSME) sector through small business development centres (SBDC).

The three new MOUs were signed between the JBDC and its newest partners: The University of Technology (UTech), Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts and College of Agriculture, Science & Education (CASE), which will all house new locations for SBDCs.

The JBDC, in partnering with these organisations, aims to improve the levels of effectiveness among MSMEs whilst increasing the availability of its business development services to them.
