The economic growth outlook for the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union (ECCU), has been revised downwards, with real growth for 2011 now projected at 0.4 per cent.

The Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) told the 71st Meeting of the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union on Friday that macroeconomic and financial conditions of the ECCU continue to be greatly challenged by the adverse global financial and economic situation.

    A Visionless bunch who have mislead and broke the dreams of the caribbean fully..

    look at cilco and B&A…who will hold who accountable for those issues….

    lets raise the bar of thinking for once in the caribbean..lets not let down the proffessionalism of careers etc…

    do the right thing, ask the hard questions lets be mature and call a spade a spade..i think thats whats lacking in the caribbean region we arent tough and straight…

    didnt murdock and sanford feel the reality…those are the steps we need to take in the caribbean, or we will be just be a recurring decimal..
