One of the biggest fallouts from the COVID-19 pandemic and Ukraine-Russia war is the spike in the price of goods. Consumers across the Caribbean are already feeling the effects in their pockets, and commentators have signalled that things will worsen.

Is there something regional central banks can do to combat this? That is the focus of the May 2022 edition of the Central Bank of Barbados’ Caribbean Economic Forum, “How Can Caribbean Central Banks Fight Inflation?”

The panellists for this event, which is being held on the occasion of the Bank’s 50th anniversary, are its Governor, Cleviston Haynes; Bank of Jamaica Governor Richard Byles; and Caribbean Economist and Advisor Marla Dukharan.
