  2. Net Remittances down 8% in September.  Net Remittances for the year are also slightly below the period January to September 2011. See chart here.
  3. Jamaica Stock Exchange Index was flat for the month of November, but down 6% versus November 2011. See chart here.

Public Debt Management Bill:  Under the Debt Management Bill, the Minister of Finance is mandated to impose ceilings on government guarantees. The bill states that the minister must exercise prudent management of public debt.  Flip though the bill here.

Gas Prices: Prices from Petrojam for 87, 90 and Diesel were all down by 1.5% to 2.3% at the end of November as compared to the end of October.  However, prices have still risen between 4% and 7% as compared to 2011. See chart here.

Tourism Data: Data for August from the Jamaica Tourist Board shows that Long-Stay Arrivals were down 25% from July. However, this is slightly misleading as August's arrivals are not much different than 2011 or 2010 showing a historical trend of dipping from July levels.  Follow the link below to see how 2012 is doing in comparison to 2011 and 2010.  See chart here.

Cruise Ship arrivals continue to be very strong in comparison to flat long-stay visitor arrivals. Data has not yet been disaggregated but anecdotal information leads diGJamaica to estimate that the addition of Falmouth to the lineup of cruise ship ports has been a strong net positive for Jamaica. Winter tourist data (September 2012 to December 2012 has yet to come in though) will ultimately determine how true this statement is.  See how strong cruise ship arrivals have been for 2012 compared to previous years in the link below.  See chart here.

Total visitor arrivals is up 13% from 2011 through August.  See the disaggregation in the link below and determine for yourself which part of the industry is growing faster. See chart here.
