economic review

Governor of the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank, the Honourable Sir K Dwight Venner presented a review of the economy of the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union (ECCU) in 2011 and the prospects for the region for 2012 on Thursday, 23 February 2012 at 8 p.m. on radio and television stations throughout the ECCU.
(Please click here to see the list of stations on which the presentation was broadcast.)

The presentation focused on some of the major issues at the international, regional and national levels which have affected and continue to affect the development of the ECCU economies and the ECCU member governments' response to the challenges. The Governor also outlined the framework for addressing the long-run growth and development prospects of the ECCU member countries in a rapidly changing environment.

Immediately following the presentation, a cross-section of residents from the eight ECCU member countries, linked through the use of video-conferencing technology, engaged the Governor in discussions on the issues arising from the presentation.

During the weeks following the presentation, a series of post presentation discussion programmes will be hosted on radio and television stations in the various countries to give members of the wider public the opportunity to voice their views on the issues that would have emerged from the presentation as well as matters pertaining to their well-being and the overall economic development of the ECCU.
