ST GEORGE’S, Grenada. 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, will be hosted by Grenada. 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.
