Pierre To Attend ECCB Monetary Council Meeting – Hilaire To Act As Prime Minister


Prime Minister Honourable Philip J. Pierre will attend the 105th Meeting of the Monetary Council of the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank [ECCB] on the 21st of July, 2023 in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

As the outgoing chairman, Honourable Pierre will handover the chairmanship to Honourable Camillo Gonsalves, Minister for Finance in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

The handover of the chairmanship of the ECCB marks an important milestone in the Prime Minister’s journey towards regional economic development and integration.

Prime Minister Pierre’s dedication to fostering financial stability and promoting sustainable growth as economies continue to navigate the challenges posed by global economic uncertainties has been widely recognised and appreciated by his counterparts and stakeholders within the Eastern Caribbean region.

The Eastern Caribbean Central Bank plays a pivotal role in the financial landscape of the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union (ECCU).

As the monetary authority for eight-member countries, including Saint Lucia, the ECCB is responsible for maintaining the stability and integrity of the Eastern Caribbean dollar, promoting economic growth, and fostering financial resilience.

Honourable Dr. Ernest Hilaire will act as the Prime Minister of Saint Lucia until Saturday 22nd of July, 2023.

  1. Those politicians waiting when the next election is near , to enact a minimum wage for certain sectors in the private sector from hotel workers to security guards

  2. That’s what Hilaire have been waiting for, now show PjP how its done. Speak with a sense of clarity. Incidentally, see where this is to be held – in St. Vincent; what did Gonsalves say that happened there? sounds familiar? at that conference you will have an expert, the one who took over from Dr. Horrace Chang, the present “Chairman of the Council for National security and Law Enforcement,” he is supposed to be in the best position to give the best advise to the St. Vincent Police and Government how to go about the apprehension of these criminals; then after that, he should unload the burden of that Chairmanship of the Council for security and Law enforcement, something he was too much in a hurry to accept. The thing to watch is, some wise guy may suggest a Federation of the Eastern Caribbean States, and if so, where would the Federal Capital be? its only a thought, what would yours be?
