Member countries of the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union (ECCU) are to benefit from a Debt Management Advisory Service funded by the Government of Canada.
The Canadian Government through the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) has approved a contribution of seven million two hundred thousand Canadian dollars (CAD $7, 200,000.00) for the establishment of a “Canada – Eastern Caribbean Debt Management Advisory Service,” the St. Kitts – Nevis based Eastern Caribbean Central Bank said Tuesday.
The ECCB said the service is designed to support measures to improve debt management in the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union (ECCU).

Brathwaite, Deputy Governor of the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) on Monday noted the importance of debt management among the member countries of the Currency Union to enable the region to achieve a sustainable rate of economic growth.
