Call for prompt bank reports
DESPITE THE Central Bank being more than two weeks late with its first-quarter economic report, president of the Barbados Bankers’ Association (BBA), Glyne Harrison, says there is no reason to be concerned just yet.
And while he pointed to the recent hectic travel schedule of Governor Dr DeLisle Worrell as the possible reason behind the delay, Harrison said there should be an arrangement in place so that the information could be disseminated in a timely manner, even in the governor’s absence.
The report is customarily made available by the bank within the first two weeks of April. It is the first time in quite some time that it has been so late.
