work of the ECCB's Research Department informs policy
decisions of the Eastern Caribbean currency union as
a whole, and of individual member governments. In any
given year scores of reports, paper and briefs are prepared
for a variety of regional and international audiences.
These include the Bank's Monetary Council and Board
of Directors, commercial bankers and official of non-bank
financial institutions. Additionally, ECCB economists
are encouraged to engage in ground-breaking research
for presentation to conferences around the world. Such
offerings, while they may not reflect the views of the
ECCB, encourage the academic interaction and stimulation
that ultimately rebound to the benefit of the institution.
