2017 Christmas Message from Timothy N.J. Antoine Governor, Eastern Caribbean Central Bank

My dear ECCB family,

Greetings to you in this yuletide season – a veritable celebration of faith, family, love and hope.

Indeed, it is a season for all people and all time.

At this time of year, I always find it appropriate to reflect on the year now ending and to contemplate the new.

This year, the ECCB made significant strides of which we can be justifiably proud. These include return to profitability and the launch of our strategic plan.

I thank all of you for your partnership and prayers.

The year 2017 has been one of mixed fortunes for the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union. Until September, our Currency Union was on pace to record its fastest growth in a decade.

This welcomed development was rudely interrupted and reversed by the passage of Hurricanes Irma and Maria, two of the most powerful storms ever recorded. Five of our member countries were impacted with three receiving direct hits.

In the aftermath of these storms, the ECCU family spirit was on full display as we supported affected members.

As people of faith, we are fortified in the knowledge that God is with us even in times of devastation and despair. He is with us in our bright days and dark days, our good times and bad times, our highs and lows.

This year, as we celebrate Christmas, let love be our highest goal!

I exhort you to: love more, care more and share more.

With this exhortation in mind, the management and staff of the ECCB have made personal contributions to bring further relief and some Christmas cheer to children in Dominica, Antigua and Barbuda and Anguilla.

As we look ahead to 2018, we are excited about the implementation of our Strategic Plan styled “Transforming the ECCU Together”.

So, from my family and me, to you:

Monetary Council, Board, management and staff, retirees, local, regional and international partners: citizens and friends of the ECCU and your families:

Merry Christmas!

May 2018 be a year of progress and prosperity for you!

Request for Proposal - Consulting Services

To Design a Renewable Energy Generation System For the ECCB Headquarters and To Provide Project Management Services

The Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) is in the implementation stage of a “Greening of Our Campus Project”.  This Project falls under our strategic priority of Enhancing Organisational Effectiveness and aims to achieve carbon neutrality and to significantly reduce electricity costs. It is envisioned that the Project will be used as a model for the use of renewable energy across the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union.

There are four significant buildings on the ECCB’s Headquarters located at Bird Rock Road, Basseterre, St Kitts - the Hon Sir K Dwight Venner Building (Phase 1), the Sir Errol N Allen Cafeteria Building (Cafeteria), the Phase 2 Building (Phase 2) and the Sir Cecil Jacobs Auditorium (Auditorium).  The four buildings use approximately 3,344,000 kWh per annum.

The Project focuses on:

  • The improvement in energy conservation habits;
  • The replacement of energy inefficient plant and equipment; and
  • The generation of electricity from renewable energy.

The Project is in line with the Paris Agreement, a United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC https://unfccc.int/2860.php) dealing with greenhouse gases emissions mitigation and adaptation, adopted by consensus in December 2015.
