Economic growth in the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union (ECCU) is predicted to show marginal improvement in 2011 amid projections of a two per cent contraction last year, according to the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB).

In a report on the Balance of Payments Statistics for 2010, the ECCB said that economic growth in the ECCU declined by 7.3 per cent in 2009, following marginal growth of 1.9 per cent the previous year due mainly to the downturn in the global economy.

Barbadians pay more for bus fare

It's no longer $1.50 cents but $2.00 for bus fare in Barbados.

An electronic trading system that will allow for real time simultaneous trading of stocks across Jamaica, Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago stock exchanges is to be launched this month, two decades after it was first mooted.

General Manager of the Jamaica Stock Exchange Marlene Street-Forrest says "Everything is now in place."

With this system, investors across the three territories will be able to buy and sell equities directly, instead of going through a home territory broker as previously obtained, and settle the transactions through a bank of their choice.
