About the Annual Meeting

The Caribbean Development Bank’s (CDB) Board of Governors’ Annual Meeting is held annually in May, in one of the Bank’s 29 member countries. This official gathering is CDB’s flagship forum for discussion among the institution’s Governors’ and sector leaders. Representatives of multilateral financial institutions, development agencies, central banks, private banks, academia and media also attend.

Meeting ThemeParticipation
The buzzword for this year’s Annual Meeting agenda is resilience.
Participation in the Annual Meeting is by invitation. The list of special guests from each member country of CDB, including private sector organisations, banks, and associations, is prepared according to internal procedures established for that purpose and must be approved by the respective country authorities.

The list for each country is updated yearly to include requests received after the previous Annual Meeting, up to the time it is submitted to the Board of Directors. Requests received after that are submitted to the Vice-President (Corporate Services) and Bank Secretary for consideration on an individual basis. There is no cost of registration.
