Despite the strengthening of the global economy, including the majority of emerging and developing countries, the Caribbean region continues to experience mixed economic outcomes amid the persistent challenges primarily associated with weak fiscal balances, stubbornly high or rising indebtedness and the devastation from severe hurricane damage. Furthermore, Caribbean countries could potentially suffer from the negative spillover effects from a trade war between the United States and China and the uncertainties surrounding the Brexit negotiations between the United Kingdom and the European Union.

This year’s Central Bank of Barbados’ Annual Review Seminar, “Macroeconomic Trends, Challenges, and Solutions Facing Developing Countries in the 21st Century”, seeks not only to focus on these critical challenges and resultant trends, but also to ventilate the innovative approaches and practical policy tools that cater to the unique characteristics of small developing countries in a dynamic and highly competitive world.

Seminar Topics

  • Economic Growth Trends and Challenges
  • International Business, Trade and Tourism
  • Fiscal Policy Tools and Government Operations
  • New Developments in Money and Capital Markets

Papers are welcomed from academics and practitioners in the field of economics, finance, international trade, or any related discipline.
