In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, every facet of our lives – from how we work, learn, worship, shop and socialise – has been transformed virtually overnight with the aid of digital technologies. The panel will discuss how countries have attempted to apply digital tools to keep their economies and societies running in the midst of the pandemic. Additionally, the panel will examine opportunities for digitisation under the recently approved World Bank-funded Caribbean Digital Transformation Programme.

The public is invited to participate in this important conversation and to share their views on specific issues during the real-time survey segment.

The Governor of the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB), Timothy N. J. Antoine will moderate the session which will explore the growing global trend towards the digitisation of the economy and everyday life, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The panel will comprise:

  • Dr. Didacus Jules – Director General of the OECS;
  • Tahseen Sayed – Country Director, Eastern Caribbean at The World Bank; and

The Bank saw the need for this initiative, as an additional platform, for engaging with the people of the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union (ECCU) as the region navigates the current COVID-19 pandemic, which threatens lives and livelihoods. The ECCB Digital Dialogues will serve as an avenue for stimulating public discourse and building regional solidarity in response to the threats and opportunities presented by the pandemic.
