The Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) launched its latest public engagement series styled: “ECCB Digital Dialogues” on 2 June.

The inaugural session was held under the theme: Pandemic and Digital Currency and featured the following panellists: Sybil Welsh, Senior Project Specialist – ECCB, Liane Irish-Wade, Senior Bank Examiner – ECCB; Simon Chantry, Chief Business Development Officer - Bitt Inc.

Governor of the ECCB, Timothy N. J. Antoine moderated the session.

The ECCB Digital Dialogues is the latest in a series of initiatives the Bank has introduced over the past four years to transform citizen engagement and stakeholders’ relations management, built on transparency, accountability and knowledge sharing, as outlined in the ECCB Strategic Plan 2017 – 2021.

The Bank saw the need for this initiative, as an additional platform, for engaging with the people of the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union (ECCU) as the region navigates the current COVID-19 pandemic, which threatens lives and livelihoods. The ECCB Digital Dialogues will serve as an avenue for stimulating public discourse and building regional solidarity in response to the threats and opportunities presented by the pandemic.

Each session of the ECCB Digital Dialogues will comprise a panel discussion on a topical issue and will include a Question and Answer segment where viewers will be invited to share their questions and comments via chat for the panelists’ response.
