Caribbean Association of Banks salutes Sir Dwight Venner

SirDwightVennerPRESS RELEASE – The Caribbean Association of Banks (CAB) wishes to thank the Honourable Sir Dwight Venner for his distinguished service, significant achievements and unstinting commitment to the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union.

After 26 years of service as Governor of the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank, the CAB acknowledges Sir Dwight’s contributions in the areas of Central Banking, Financial Inclusion, Monetary and International Economics, Public Finance and Economic Development through his work and extensive publications.

Sir Dwight has received several awards from various governments, all of which serve as a testimony to his distinguished and outstanding service to the Eastern Caribbean Sub-region. Undoubtedly, each award demonstrates statesmanship and the high regard in which he is held in the hearts and minds of the people of the region.

The CAB is confident that the legacy of Sir Dwight will serve as an inspiration to, not only leaders in the financial services sector but all leaders who are entrusted with the responsibility of fostering the growth and development of our small island states.

The CAB wishes Sir Dwight the very best in his future endeavours.

The CAB is a community of banks and other financial institutions in the Caribbean Region, which proactively influences issues impacting the financial services sector through advocacy, education and networking. The CAB represents sixty-six (66) banks and financial institutions in the Caribbean with an asset base in excess of US$31 billion as at Dec 31, 2014, in addition to ten (10) Service members comprising regional and international technological and professional institutions and three (3) Honorary Members.

  1. Sir Dwight Venner's signature on the various denominations of the Eastern Caribbean Dollar is symbolic of the strength of our common currency. It is significant that we had a common currency before the European Euro and that we have withstood IMF pressure to devalue our currency. We are "small island people" with a legacy of "strong dollars."
    It made sense to keep Sir Dwight right at the helm of our EC Dollars and Cents.
