FirstCaribbean International Bank - UWI Breakfast Presentation

The University of the West Indies in collaboration with FirstCaribbean International Bank hosted a Breakfast Presentation on June 16, 2010 at the Mount Restaurant, Cave Hill Campus. The event was very well attended by over 80 business executives in the local banking and financial services sector from across the island. The purpose of the event was to present the findings of the FirstCaribbean International Bank funded research. The research was conducted by Professor Partick Watson, Director of the Sir Arthur Lewis Institute of Social & Economic Studies, UWI, St. Augustine Campus, Dr. Winston Moore, Lecturer in Economics, UWI, Cave Hill Campus and Dr. Justin Robinson, Head of Department and Lecturer, Department of Management Studies, UWI, Cave Hill Campus, as part of the FirstCaribbean International Bank - UWI 2007 - 2009 Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).

Through the current 2010 - 2012 MOU, the Bank will provide a disbursement of US$ 375,000 to the UWI in equal tranches of US$ 125,000. The MOU will also provide continued support to UWI researchers on the three campuses to enable them to conduct research issues of importance to the banking and financial services sector through a new grant of US$ 86,250.
