The Central Bank of The Bahamas in conjunction with the Caribbean Centre for Money and Finance (CCMF) is hosting the 48th Annual Monetary Studies Conference, under the theme “Issues and Challenges Facing the Caribbean in the New Global Economy” November 9-11, 2016.


The Monetary Studies Conference is the premiere economic forum for economists, econometricians, and researchers from the Caribbean, at varying stages of their careers, to come together and share their research, knowledge and techniques. This year, over 40 delegates have registered, comprising academicians from a number of countries in the region, as well as the US and Europe.

The highlight of the three-day conference is the Adlith Brown Memorial Lecture, which honours the significant and invaluable contributions of Dr Adlith Brown to economic discourse and literature in the Caribbean.

This year the lecture will be given by Bahamian Therese Turner-Jones under the theme: Imagine Vibrant Economies.

Turner-Jones currently serves as the general manager of the Caribbean Country Department (CCD), Inter-American Development Bank (IDB)<-- --> in Jamaica.

The conference will open officially today with an address by Michael Halkitis, Minister of State in The Ministry of Finance.

Prime Minister Perry Christie addressed Parliament earlier in the week on the Grand Bahama Investment Incentives Bill. Read his communication here.

More than 400 representatives of non-governmental organizations from throughout Latin America and the Caribbean region on November 8 initiated a two-day debate in collaboration with the Inter-American Development Bank Group on the best way to achieve sustainable growth in the region, to improve the lives of current and future generations.
