ECCB Digital Dialogues: Pandemic and Food Security
On the next episode of the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank’s new public engagement series, styled ECCB DIGITAL DIALOGUES, the featured topic will be “Pandemic and Food Security”.

The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown into stark relief our access to safe and nutritious food. Lockdowns disrupted supply chains, triggering panic buying and hoarding out of fear of running out of basic food supplies. This situation occurred throughout the Currency Union while, paradoxically, in some cases, agricultural produce rotted away due, in part, to the total shutdown of the vital tourism sector.

Please join the ECCB Governor as he moderates a live and interactive ECCB Digital Dialogue on the critical issue of food security. Governor Antoine will be joined by Hon. Saboto Caesar, Minister of Agriculture, Forestry, Fisheries, Rural Transformation, Industry and Labour in the Government of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines; Ms. Theresa Marryshow, Farmer and Retired Agricultural Officer from Grenada; and Mr Daniel Arthurton, Entrepreneur Farmer from St Kitts and Nevis.

Our distinguished panel will explore the criticality of food security in building resilience and the socio-economic transformation of our region. The panelists will discuss opportunities to revitalise agriculture and make it sustainable. They will consider the possibilities that digital technologies offer for enhancing agricultural production and the efficiency of markets. The ultimate goal is the health and wealth of our people and region.

Be part of the conversation as we take collective action to transform our region, now.
