The economic performance of the Caribbean region continues to lag behind other small developing and emerging economies. The theme of the Central Bank of Barbados’ 39th Annual Review Seminar, “Critical Minds for Critical Times: Economic Research as a Building Block for Transformative Growth in the Caribbean” embodies the role economic policy research has to play to address the persistent challenges faced by Caribbean economies to achieving greater economic diversification, higher productivity and competitiveness needed to support transformative growth.
