  1. What is patently clear is that there is no agenda to interest me in any outcome. The ECCB must be vigilant to put a lot of daylight between itself and the rest of CARI-DOESN'T-COM. Sorry -- CARICOM.

    Inquiring minds want to know what are (is) the main decision(s) or issue(s) facing this meeting. Does this meeting have a definitive, or serves any purpose -- other than just meeting? Or, is it that we need better and more alert journalism?

    It is time to start making sense/use of our time in this region. Business as usual is not going to cut it any longer.

  2. The ECCB is an excellent example of what Small Island Developing States(SIDS)like the OECS can achieve when we come together as one. Imagine what could happen to the economies of Saint Lucia and the other OECS countries if each island had its own currency.
    The OECS moving full speed ahead whilst CARICOM still stuck in the pipeline waiting to be unchoked.
