The former governor of the Central Bank of Ireland Dr. Patrick Honohan is the Central Bank of Barbados' 4th distinguished visiting fellow.

Dr. Honohan, a member of the governing council of the European Central Bank, was instrumental in Ireland's recovery from its worst financial crisis in a generation.

He will be the special guest at the 2017 Caribbean Economic Forum on March 30th, where the topic will be "What Policy Course for a Small Open Economy in Today's Global Macro-economic Environment?"

The forum, now in its fourth year, will be broadcast live both locally and regionally, in addition to being streamed online.

While in Barbados Dr. Honohan will meet with several ministers of government as well as officials from the Financial Services Commission, and members of the financial and business sectors.

During his three-week visit, he will also give two lectures at the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill campus.
