The Colourful Economy is the theme of the 40th Anniversary Lecture Series, which will culminate with the ECCB@40 Global Conference being held in collaboration with the Central Banking Autumn Meetings at the ECCB Headquarters in St. Kitts from 8-10 November, 2023.
The theme for the Commonwealth of Dominica Edition is Leveraging Dominica as the Nature Isle: Green and Orange Economies. Moderating the night’s lecture is environmental lawyer and entrepreneur, Ms. Annika Bellot, who will manage the discussions generated by the distinguished panel. The esteemed panelists are the Owner of Ken’s Hinterland Adventure Tours and Transfer Service, Mr. Kenneth George Dill; Private Sector Consultant and Project Manager, Ms. Lizra Fabien; Economist and Intellectual Property Expert, Mr. McCarthy Marie; CEO/Director of Tourism at Discover Dominica Authority, Mr. Colin Piper; and Developer and Managing Director of Jungle Bay Dominica, Mr. Samuel “Sam” Raphael.
The Colourful Economy and its intersection with sustainable development have provided stimulating discussions during the successful staging on 21 July, 22 June, 31 May, 20 April, 23 March, and 28 February, 2023 of the Saint Vincent and the Grenadines (Yellow and Green Economies), Montserrat (Yellow Economy), Grenada (Blue, Orange and Green Economies), Saint Lucia (Green and Purple Economies), Antigua and Barbuda (Silver Economy) and Anguilla (Blue and Green Economies) Editions, respectively.
The Commonwealth of Dominica Edition on 26 September will continue in this tradition by exploring socioeconomic, environmental, and ecological considerations for sustainable development and how such green issues can dovetail with the creative or cultural (orange) economy. The orange economy is a major driver of job creation and economic growth,
depending heavily on creativity, intellectual assets, and talent.
The lecture is for everyone – from tourism planners, employees and developers to entrepreneurs including farmers and fishers, as well as anyone with an interest in expanding the green and orange economies in the Commonwealth of Dominica and the other countries of the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union.
