FINANCIAL SERVICES PROGRAMS
WASHINGTON, D.C. 2016
CCAA and the Inter-American Development bank co-hosted the Finance, Fintech and the Future of Banking forum in Washington, D.C. on October 5-6, 2016. The Forum was an opportunity for stakeholders to discuss the underlying challenges to the region’s finance and banking services industries, and was designed to focus on the practical and actionable steps that institutions and countries can take, and are taking, to help to build resilience in the financial services sector. Over the course of two days, participants engaged in public and private discussions that acknowledged an evolving global landscape that will require adaptation, but which ultimately can drive a re-energized Caribbean Basin banking industry.
CCAA, in collaboration with the Caribbean Export Development Agency (CEDA), co-hosted the Workshop on Caribbean Banking and the Caribbean International Financial Services Sector, which took place at the Curaçao Marriott Beach Resort and Emerald Casino on September 30 – October 1, 2015, in Willemstad, Curaçao.
EVENT DESCRIPTION: Caribbean financial institutions find themselves increasingly vulnerable to regulatory changes and new trends that threaten their very existence. This workshop will bring to the table key members of the regional and international stakeholder community, including Central Banks and financial institutions, to identify possible solutions for regional institutions and economies. Outputs of the program will also be submitted for consideration at the Global Forum of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), taking place in Bridgetown, Barbados, in late October 2015.
