Published on

Caribbean Growth Forum is an initiative led by the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB), Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), and the World Bank, in close collaboration with the United Kingdom Agency for International Development (DFID) and the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA). The objective of the Forum is to identify policies and initiatives aimed at inducing growth and creating jobs in the Caribbean region through analytical work, knowledge exchange and inclusive dialogue. Under the newly formed chapter, approximately 120 persons from the public and private sectors, as well as civil society in St. Kitts and Nevis will identify intervention strategies, which will then be submitted to funding agencies such as CDB, IADB, DFID and CIDA. The Caribbean Growth Forum was launched in Jamaica in June 2012. Since then, National Chapters have been established in the Dominican Republic, Antigua and Barbuda, Grenada, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, St. Lucia and St. Kitts and Nevis. Information Source:
