Grenada will host the 48th Annual Meeting of the Board of Governors of the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB), which is scheduled to take place on May 30 and 31, 2018. The programme for this year’s Meeting will focus on resilience, against the backdrop of one of the most devastating hurricane seasons the Caribbean Region has experienced in recent history.
Approximately 400 delegates, including Government Ministers and officials, private sector representatives, members of civil society, academia, and media are expected to attend the Meeting. The event will highlight the impact of the Bank’s investments in its 19 borrowing member countries (BMCs). In addition, participants will take part in strategic discussions on resolving some of the Caribbean Region’s most pressing economic and social development issues.
“CDB thanks the Government of Grenada for agreeing to host the Bank’s 48th Annual Meeting. We look forward to working hand in hand with local officials on this flagship event. I am optimistic about the outcomes the Meeting will realise as our partners gather with a common goal to help this Region achieve resilience in all its forms,” said Dr. Wm. Warren Smith, President, CDB.
