The goals and objectives of The Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica (PSOJ) are carried out, to a large extent, through the work of the Organisation’s Committees.

These Committees focus on key areas of national development which are critical to the development of the Jamaican private sector and to the successful survival of businesses in Jamaica.

The tools used to achieve the objectives of the Committees and hence those of the wider PSOJ, include advocacy, workshops, articles and training, to name a few. It is through its Committees that the PSOJ ensures that the presence and strong voice of the private sector are constantly maintained and heard throughout the Jamaican society.

The PSOJ Committees are as follows:

  1. Corporate Governance Committee (CGC)

The Corporate Governance Committee was established with a mission to become the key influencer in the delivery and adoption of corporate governance best business practices, by providing access to knowledge and learning resources for our members and leaders of business enterprises, so they can effectively compete in the global market.

  1. National Security & Justice Committee

Crime, especially violent crime, presents a challenge to leadership at the level of the political administration, the criminal justice administration, and other key institutions such as the schools, as well as the community and civil society in general. A broad consensus based on unity of purpose, agreement on the values that should inform the responses of the state, the priorities, the funding of these priorities and the willingness to make the associated sacrifices is needed (and may even be a precondition for an effective and sustainable programme of action).”

The PSOJ is committed to playing its part in supporting the state, and more particularly, the security forces in addressing the crime problem which is a not only a threat to the business community, but to society as a whole.
