More than 400 attendees from the Caribbean, the United Kingdom, Canada, China, Italy and Germany, converged in the Second City for the 44th staging of the Caribbean Development Bank's annual board of governors' meeting.

The event, held at the Montego Bay Convention Centre, opened with the Financial Secretary's welcome reception at the Hyatt Ziva on Monday night (May 16). Jamaica's Minister of Finance and Planning Audley Shaw chaired this committee.

Held annually in May in one of the bank’s 28 member countries, this official gathering was a forum for discussion among the institution’s governors and sector leaders.

Representatives of multilateral financial institutions, development agencies, central banks, private banks and media were in the tourism capital for the occasion.
