The Bank of the Bahamas (BOB) is sponsoring a panel discussion on Bahamian Economic Resiliency and the Global Economic Crisis presented by the College of The Bahamas (COB) and Chartered Financial Analysts Society of The Bahamas on March 21 at the Performing Arts Centre at COB.

“This platform will present a unique opportunity for a diverse group of financial experts to facilitate dialogue on the current state of affairs of the local and global economy and offer resolutions for implementation,” says Michael Basden, BOB’s marketing manager.

“By the very nature of our business, the stability of the economy is crucial to the bank’s existence. By supporting this event, the discussion is taken to the wider community.”

Areas to be addressed include: protecting the Bahamian capital through exchange controls; expanding job creation through industry diversification; a 2012 forecast of the economy; and the government’s ability to raise funding.

Panelists include: Zhivargo Laing, Minister of State for Finance; Wendy Craigg, Governor Central Bank of The Bahamas; Michael Halkitis, consultant, Financial Services & Investments of BAF; Olivia Saunders, professor at COB; and Anthony Ferguson, president CFAL and the Guardian Media Group.
