Good day and many thanks for your interest in the Caribbean Business Report, coming as we celebrate out Nobel Laureates – and the birth dates of Sir Arthur Lewis and Sir Derek Walcott, both born on the 23rd January. There are two big events to mark this week – the Sir Derek Walcott lecture by McDonald Dixon on Tuesday and on Thursday the Sir Arthur Lewis Memorial Lecture delivered by the Governor of the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank Timothy Antoine – both at the Financial Centre.CBR_issue_558
ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup is on – today the West Indies setting a target of 268 for England. Kimani Melius got a good start, but needs to carry on as Kevlon Anderson and Nyeem Young did and posted a total that the bowlers should be able to defend. Let’s hope for the best as the West Indies are in a very tough group – with Australia, England and Nigeria.
