Efficiency and Revenue Issues in the Jamaican External Trade Sector
AbstractThis article is concerned with issues of the efficiency and revenue aspects of the current Jamaican taxes on trade, including tariffs, other charges, and customs valuation questions.

Finally, it comments on the scope for integrating tariff reform with reforms in domestic taxes to recoup potential revenue losses and increase the efficiency of the tax system.
