25th Sir Arthur Lewis Memorial Lecture

The Eastern Caribbean Central Bank is pleased to present its 25th Sir Arthur Lewis Memorial Lecture, taking place at the Sir Cecil Jacobs Auditorium on the Bank’s Campus in Saint Kitts, on Thursday, 7 December from 6:00p.m.    The public is invited to tune in to the lecture, which will air live on ECCB Connects’ Facebook and YouTube platforms, as well as on national TV and radio stations throughout the ECCU.  You can also join the livestream right here.

Keynote speaker, Dr. Ian Goldin, Oxford University Professor of Globalisation and Development, will be addressing the important theme of Deglobalisation: Implications and Imperatives for Emerging Markets and Small States.  Professor Goldin has received wide recognition for his contributions to development and research, including having been knighted by the French Government.  Dr. Goldin previously was World Bank Vice President; the World Bank Group’s Director of Policy; Chief Executive of the Development Bank of Southern Africa; and Economic Advisor to President Nelson Mandela.

This year’s lecture is not to be missed, as it will surely follow in the rich intellectual tradition of the Caribbean’s Economics Nobel Laureate, the late Sir Arthur Lewis, whose legacy as a founding father of development economics has made an indelible impact on the work culture and ethos of the ECCB.   The ECCB has held the Sir Arthur Lewis Memorial Lecture every year since 14 November, 1996 up to 6 November, 2019.  Following a three-year hiatus, the annual event resumes this year as part of the ECCB’s 40th Anniversary Celebrations being held under the theme ECCB@40 - A Year of Reflection, Celebration and Implementation.  To learn about Sir Arthur Lewis, who was born in Saint Lucia, and the enduring ways in which the ECCB paid tribute to him in the early years following his death at the age of 76 on 15 June, 1991, you are invited to view Sir Arthur: The First, a video production by the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank.
