HARBOUR VIEW–Shaping Sustainable Economic Recovery in the Caribbean – Challenges and Opportunities, will be the theme of this year’s Governor’s Symposium, which will be held in the auditorium of American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine in Cupecoy on June 21.
The symposium will feature national, regional and international speakers who will share their views and ideas and participate in an interactive panel discussion with the audience. Speakers will address, amongst other things, economic trends and characteristics, policy constraints and opportunities, and strategic actions in the areas of, among others, the environment, infrastructure, and economic sustainability in relation to current and future national development, it was stated in a press release on Monday.
Due to the limited space, the Governor’s Symposium will be by invitation only. Governor Eugene Holiday will invite persons 15 years and older interested in attending the symposium to submit their personal information online. Details and the link will be provided in a separate press release.
The Governor’s Symposium Organising Committee installed by the Governor to organise the symposium comprises Makhicia Brooks as chairperson, Patrick Trijsburg as secretary, Dr. Rolinda Carter, Dahjanarah Philips, Dwayne President and Rayan Rammo. Further updates will be provided as preparations for the symposium progress.
The overall objective of the symposium is the promotion of good governance. The annual Governor’s Symposium is considered to be a supportive platform for all invited stakeholders – government, civil society and the private sector – to focus, raise awareness and function as a catalyst for best practices in the community, the release said. This will be the eighth symposium the Governor has organised.
