ABOUT THE SEMINAR
Created 15 Jan, 2015
7/28/2015 to 7/31/2015
Since 1981 the Central Bank of Barbados’s Annual Review Seminar has provided a discussion forum for economists, academics and practitioners in the areas of economics, finance, and other related areas. It is our pleasure to invite you to our 35th Annual Review Seminar, to be held from July 28 – 31, 2015 in Barbados.
The theme for this year’s conference is “Rethinking Economic & Financial Policy Research & Implementation.” This year’s theme emphasises the importance of policy makers engaging with key stakeholders (academia, private sector organizations, NGOs, the wider community) in the review of conventional approaches to economic research and implementation of policy reforms. In this regard, the Seminar provides an opportunity for participants to discuss their research in full view of this approach amid the new and continuing challenges faced by Caribbean economies.
This year’s conference will address a wide range of topics:
- Macroeconomic Stability
- Economic Growth
- Diversification Opportunities
- Government Operations
- Finance & Financial Stability
- Trade & International Business
- Economic Development
- Other Macroeconomic Issue
- Practical Workshop
- Panel Discussion
Papers are welcomed from academics and practitioners in the field of economics, finance, international trade, or any related discipline. Those who do not wish to present a paper, but would be interested in stimulating and policy-oriented discussion, are also welcomed.
There are no fees to be paid. However, participants are asked to cover the cost of their accommodation. Upon request, the Conference Secretariat can arrange accommodation.
