Managers and other senior officers from commercial banks and non-bank financial institutions which operate in the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union and the wider Caribbean will gather at the ECCB Headquarters, St Kitts and Nevis, over the period 10-11 November for the 27th Annual Conference with Commercial Banks.
The Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) began hosting the annual conference with commercial banks in 1990. The conference serves as a forum for discussing issues which are critical to the development of the region’s financial and banking sector.
This year the conference will be held under the theme: The Way Forward: Commercial Banks in a New Environment. The sessions will focus on three of the major issues which affect the banking sector currently:
1. The Impact and Solution for De-Risking;
2. The Progress on Basel II and the International Financial Reporting Standard (IFRS9) and
3. Credit and the Macro-environment.
