ECCB Governor Antoine

This initiative, an important deliverable in the ECCB Strategic Plan 2017-2021, marked another milestone in the Bank’s ongoing enterprise to build out a financial market infrastructure within the ECCU that is fit for a modern, strong and diversified financial system.

The video conferenced program of the event opened with a prayer by Juletta Edinborough, Deputy Dir – ECCB Statistics Dept; followed by welcome remarks by C Térèsa Smith, MC, Dir Stats Dept, with Rhina Meade guiding through the main features of the web portal.

From St. Vincent Agency office, Edmond Jackson Chairman of the Regional Debt Coordinating Committee, updated on the webportal status

Chairman of the Regional Debt Coordinating Committee, Edmond Jackson out of the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Agency office spoke to the Role of the web portal; after which Governor Timothy Antoine delivered remarks crowning the event and participating in the question and answer session.

In collaboration with Member Governments and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the ECCB developed the Public Debt and Market Information Web Portal out of a desire to ensure that the public has accurate and timely information available to make informed decisions. Potential users include:

  • an investor considering the purchase of government security;
  • a credit rating agency assessing the creditworthiness of a government;
  • a regional or international financial institution undertaking surveillance;
  • academics and students carrying out research; and
  • Media practitioners seeking current and accurate information from a credible source.

Another critical objective of this initiative is to broaden the investor base for the Regional Government Securities Market (RGSM), a major component of the Eastern Caribbean Securities Market. 

A release from The ECCB recognises that information is a public good and that the dissemination of relevant and timely information is an essential element in the transformation of the ECCU.

Participating at the Montserrat Agency office with host Miss Maureen Estwick, media personnel, asked questions in company of senior staff from the Ministry of Finance. The session was video taped by Live Island Events.
