“Pandemic and Digital Transformation” will be the focus of ECCB Digital Dialogues on November 5.
The Governor of the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB), Timothy N. J. Antoine will moderate the session which will explore the growing global trend towards the digitisation of the economy and everyday life, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The panel will comprise: Director General of the OECS - Dr Didacus Jules; Country Director, Eastern Caribbean at The World Bank - Tahseen Sayed; and Managing Director, Eastern Caribbean Telecommunications Authority - Andrew Miller.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic resulting in digital technologies being used in practically every aspect of life including: work, learning, worship, shopping and socialising, the panel will also discuss how countries have attempted to apply digital tools to keep their economies and societies running in the midst of the pandemic. Additionally, the panel will examine opportunities for digitisation under the recently approved World Bank-funded Caribbean Digital Transformation Programme.
The session will be broadcast live on the ECCB’s Facebook page and YouTube channel and on radio stations across the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union from 10:00 a.m. The public is encouraged to participate in this important conversation and to share their views on specific issues during the real-time survey segment.
