Anthony Hyde’s

His unrelenting faith in the tremendous economic potential of a manufacturing sector that is allowed to operate on a level playing field inspired Anthony Hyde’s achievements during his two years (1994-1996) as President of the JMA. His administration secured the relief of retroactive Customs on duties, on raw materials for the packaging sub- sector, as well as deferment of the tax on imported raw materials and intermediate goods. His advocacy for reform of the labour market has subsequently borne fruit, with increased worker training and certification in the industrial sector.
