Description

The Third Caribbean Development Roundtable (23-24 April 2014) was held under the theme “Exploring strategies for sustainable growth and development in Caribbean Small Island Developing States (SIDS)”. The Roundtable focused on challenges faced in stimulating growth and creating a capacity for resilience among the Caribbean SIDS. The conference examined the continuing challenge of igniting robust growth in Caribbean Small States, and at the same time, mitigating structural and cyclical risks and uncertainty.
The presentations made at the Roundtable can be placed under six themes which comprise the sections of this report, namely: Macroeconomic reorganisation in the context of risk and uncertainty; fiscal adjustment, stabilisation and debt management; services, public/private partnership and development; social protection; human capital formation; and environmental protection.
