Jamaican Road Project Gets IDB Backing

The Inter-American Development Bank will lend USD50 million to help rehabilitate storm-damaged roads in Jamaica. The project aims to make the Caribbean nation’s primary road networks flood resistant and decrease travel costs. Jamaica’s Ministry of Transport and Works, through the National Works Agency, will manage the project.
