PRIME MINISTER FREUNDEL STUART has lavished praise on past governors of the Central Bank of Barbados, including Dr DeLisle Worrell, who was fired in February, as well as the Acting Governor Cleviston Haynes.

Stuart did so on Saturday night at the bank’s 45th anniversary awards gala and dinner held at the Barbados Concorde Experience in Spencers, Christ Church.

Even though Haynes has been in the job for only three months, the Prime Minister pointedly said that the 35-year Central Bank veteran had, in a short time, demonstrated he was more than capable of continuing the long tradition of excellence of leadership, even more so by raising the gaze of the monetary authority to new and hitherto unimagined horizons.

“The Central Bank of Barbados has been led over the years by a galaxy of fine governors in the persons of Sir Courtney Blackman (1972-1987), (the late) Dr Kurleigh King (1987-1992), Calvin Springer (1992-1997); Winston Cox (1997-1999), Dr Marion Williams (1999-2009) and Dr DeLisle Worrell (2009-2017),” Stuart said in his keynote speech.
