While at the Bank, he attended two IMF Balance of Payments training courses in Washington D.C and St. Kitts and Nevis, an IMF Financial Programming training course in Barbados and several internal training programmes conducted by Central Bank officers. Additionally, he has written several articles, mainly balance of payments related and to a lesser extent, on the public sector which have been published in international economic journals, for example, in Central Bank’s Economic Review, Money Affairs, International Journal of Public Administration, Savings and Development Issues, International Advances in Economic Research and Central Bank’s 30th Anniversary Publication, to name a few.
He was also engaged in part-time employment and was attached to the Department of Management Studies of the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus where he lectured in Economic and Quantitative Aids to Decision-Making (1991-92), Introduction to Managerial Economics (1994) and Introduction to Microeconomics (1995-97).
