On Tuesday 25 January 2005, audiences in the ECCB offices in its eight member countries participated in a live, interactive discussion with Governor Sir K Dwight Venner.

Following his presentation on the performance of the ECCU economy in 2004 and the prospects for 2005 and beyond, Governor Venner fielded questions relating to the strength of the EC dollar; the CARICOM Single Market and Economy; regional tax initiatives and governments’ fiscal deficits.

In an historic move, radio and television stations in all eight islands broadcast the live discussions simultaneously, and members of the public made contributions to the discussions through e-mail messages sent to the Bank’s website.

A sample of the reviews received on the night of the presentation include:

"I was delighted to hear the Governor’s 2004 Performance address. I do hope our people and especially our East Caribbean people are paying close attention to the challenges that lie ahead. Those of us from the region even though presently away are certainly listening."

" I would like to compliment the Central Bank on this new outlook for the OECS. "
