The Eastern Caribbean Central Bank has launched its Strategic Plan 2017-2021: Transforming the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union Together.
The Plan was launched this morning via a regional video-conference which brought together dignitaries and public and private sector representatives from across the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union (ECCU).
Governor of the ECCB, Timothy N. J. Antoine said, the Plan comes at a time when the ECCU is confronting many challenges including low growth, high unemployment and increased severity and frequency of natural disasters. He added that the Plan reflects the Bank’s recognition of the rapidly changing economic and financial landscape and the necessity for agility in the delivery of its financial stability and economic development mandates.
The ECCB’s Strategic Plan is also anchored to the Bank’s new mission statement: “Advancing the good of the people of the currency union by maintaining monetary and financial stability and promoting growth and development” and seeks to achieve five goals:
- Maintain a strong and stable EC dollar;
- Ensure a strong, diversified and resilient financial Sector;
- Be the advisor of choice to our participating governments in pursuit of fiscal and debt sustainability;
- Actively promote the economic development of our member territories; and
- Enhance organisational effectiveness to ensure responsiveness and service excellence.
