The (RFSR), the first of its kind in the Caribbean, culminates the development and enhancement of the architecture for financial stability in the Region. This included upgrading the national financial stability systems, since the regional financial stability architecture is built on national structures. The report complements the national financial stability reports and its purpose is to sensitize the Caribbean people to issues relevant to the stability of the regional financial system. By reviewing the main sources of risks to the stability of the regional financial system, as well as the policy measures being used to deal with emerging risks, the report seeks to help build confidence and provide policymakers with guidance on the building blocks to defuse any financial tensions in the system. Further, it identifies the need for financial sector reforms, with an emphasis on increased harmonisation, coordination and cooperation from a regional perspective.

Future editions of the report will be produced on an annual basis as a collaborative exercise by regional stakeholders led by the CCMF and regional central banks as a permanent component of a modern Caribbean financial stability architecture.

Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Barbados, Mr. Cleviston Haynes, will present the findings.
