Moderator: Professor Justin Robinson
Guest Speaker: Professor Avinash Persaud
On April 15, 2021 at 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. AST via ZOOM, Professor Justin Robinson, Head of Department of Economics and Executive Director The Sagicor Cave Hill School of Business and Management hosts a discussion with Professor Avinash Persaud on the work of the CARICOM Commission on The Economy.
At the height of the first wave of the Global Pandemic of COVID-19, the CARICOM Commission on the Economy met virtually to discuss what the Commission would recommend to CARICOM Heads of Government as the best “collective” response to the pandemic, drawing on what was then our draft report for the region’s long term growth strategy and direction. The focus was on what could be done now, given all of the constraints of operating in the environment then, that could have an immediate impact on the region, as well as being consistent with where the region needs to go in the long-run.
Please join us for this important discussion on the role of the private sector in driving Caribbean integration and fostering sustainable growth and development in CARICOM.
