Winston Mahfood

A conscientious and uncompromising advocate, Winston Mahfood (1974-1975, 1976-1981) worked closely with both the Government and the newly formed Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica to secure the effective solutions to the many challenges that threatened the viability of manufacturers in the late 70’s. In the face of the foreign exchange crisis, he promoted a major shift from import substitution manufacturing to export- led development, and by the end of his two terms as President, he had helped to firmly establish the private sector as the engine of national growth.
