“This is a very timely conversation to have in light of the ongoing effort to transform our economy,” said Novaline Brewster, Chief of Corporate Communications at the Central Bank. “So we are very pleased to have a panel with this level of expertise and experience.”

Brewster revealed that while the conference is an invitation-only event, the public can watch the panel discussion online. “We consider this to be a subject that is of broad national interest, so we will be livestreaming it on our Facebook page, website, and YouTube channel.
