Public Affairs Officer, Ms. Novaline Brewster, explained that the Open Day, at the Bank’s headquarters, is in celebration of the institution’s 40th birthday, and visitors will get a first-hand look at the Bank’s work environment and also gain a better understanding of its functions and services, while hearing about its evolution over the last forty years. The Central Bank of Barbados was established on May 2, 1972.

She stated further that the event will showcase the Bank’s financing opportunities available to businesses through its guarantee schemes, and provide information on how the Bank manages the economy, set economic policy, provide economic advice to government and regulate the banking sector.

Moreover, visitors can learn more about the manufacture of the country’s notes and coins as well as the proposed redevelopment of Church Village and the Masonic Lodge project.

“This event should be seen as a unique occasion to interact one-on-one with the Governor and other senior management and staff, who will be on hand to answer queries about the work of their respective departments, and to tour the Bank and the Frank Collymore Hall,” Brewster explained.

Governor Dr. DeLisle Worrell, in addition to meeting with visitors, will present a talk on “How We Manage the Economy” in the Frank Collymore Hall at 11:30 a.m.

Other activities to commemorate this milestone include a church service at the St. Mary’s Anglican Church on April 29, the airing on CBC TV 8 of a documentary titled from an “Agrarian Society to a Service-Driven Economy: the Story of Barbados’ Economic Transformation” on Sunday, April 29 at 9:00 p.m., a Gala and Awards Ceremony on May 5, and a Health Fair on May 16.
