Washington, D.C. – Caribbean Central American Action and the Inter-American Development Bank, together with our partner organizations, are pleased to announce that the Right Honorable Allen Chastanet, Prime Minister of St. Lucia, has confirmed his participation in “Finance, Fintech, and the Future of Banking in the Caribbean Basin”, taking place from October 4-6, 2016 in Washington, D.C. The event will take place at the headquarters of the Organization of American States, our co-hosts for the forum.

Prime Minister Chastanet assumed office on June 7, 2016, and is leading St. Lucia at a time when regional banks, particularly the smaller banks operating in the member nations of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), are finding it increasingly challenging to establish, and maintain, correspondent banking relationships. The Prime Minister will provide an opening statement that will lay the groundwork for the two-day conversation on correspondent banking, remittances, and the international financial services industry.

“Finance, Fintech, and the Future of Banking in the Caribbean Basin” has quickly become one of the most anticipated forums for taking stock of the challenges to small economies in the evolving world of the financial services industries, and for examining a proactive path to implementing real-world solutions.
