Greater than 200 bankers, financial services professionals, regulators, Government officials, and representatives of regional and international agencies from the Caribbean, North America, South America, Europe, Asia, and Africa will meet in the approaching days for CAB Conference Saint Lucia 2022.

It is going to be the primary time since 2019 that the foremost gathering of regional banks will probably be convened in person, and from all reports, the highly anticipated event will probably be crucial and transformative.

The forty ninth Annual General Meeting of the Caribbean Association of Banks (CAB) Inc. will probably be held on the Harbor Club – Curio Collection by Hilton on Wednesday 26 October 2022.

Throughout the AGM, members will deliberate on matters affecting the financial services industry. There can even be voting for vacant positions arising on the Board of Directors, including a new Chairperson to switch Mr. Dalton Lee, who has served two terms with distinction.

The AGM will probably be followed by two days of high-level discourse, presentations by inspirational speakers and industry leaders in technology and finance, under the theme: “Banking For The Future.”

The opening plenary will speak to Sanctions, Supply Chain Resilience, Environmental, Social and Governance Compliance, Trade Finance, and Technology & Payments. The closing plenary will address South-South Co-operation, The Changing DNA of Caribbean Banks, Leadership, and De-risking.

Among the many agencies represented will probably be the African Export Import Bank (Afreximbank), the Atlantic Council Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center, Avvant, the Central Bank of Barbados, Financial & International Business Association (FIBA), Pt. Lisas Industial Port Development Corporation (PLIPDECO), Shridath Ramphal Centre for International Trade Law, Policy and Services (SRC) of University of the West Indies, The Leadership Xperience, Ernst & Young Services Ltd., Hitachi Systems Security Inc., Alliance One Management Consulting, the International Finance Company (IFC), the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States, and Republic Bank, inter alia.

CAB Conference 2022 can even feature a Training Day facilitated by IFC and FIBA, which is able to delve into Trade Finance and Correspondent Banking.

This will probably be the primary time that IFC will probably be offering training through CAB. The Atlantic Council can even take the chance to host a roundtable on de-risking and correspondent banking, a subject on which CAB, The Atlantic Council, and FIBA recently offered testimony before the House Committee on Financial Services in the US of America.

Further to the business sessions, participants can even be wanting to benefit from networking opportunities during social events reminiscent of the Opening Ceremony, Poolside Cocktail, the Closing Party, and Surf & Turf Networking Day, where delegates will travel by catamaran to go to a working cocoa plantation, Fond Doux Eco Resort.
