Former Governor of the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) Sir Dwight Venner has died.
Reports are that Venner passed away at Tapion Hospital on Thursday night.
In late 2015 Venner announced his retirement after 26 years of service in his position as governor. He stepped down at the end of November 2015.
Venner was the longest-serving governor of any central bank, monetary authority, or federal reserve, having served faithfully since 1989.
He previously served as Director of Finance and Planning in the Government of Saint Lucia from 1981 to 1989.
In 1996 he was named a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE), and in 2001 promoted to Knight (KBE) in the same order. In 2012 he received the Saint Lucia Cross for outstanding contribution in economics and finance.
