Acting Central Bank Governor confirmed in post

Just over a month shy of his one-year anniversary as the Acting Governor of the Central Bank of Barbados, Cleviston Haynes is set to be confirmed in the post in the New Year.

Finance Minister Chris Sinckler today revealed that Haynes who has been acting in the post since February 24, will serve for a period of five years effective January 1.

Haynes, who has more than three decades experience in central banking, with emphasis on macroeconomic policy and bank regulation had replaced former Governor Dr DeLisle Worrell who was fired by the Minister Sinckler.

Haynes started his career at the Bank as a research trainee in 1980, and held various positions including advisor to former Governors Calvin Springer, Winston Cox, and Dr Marion Williams.

He also served as Deputy Governor from February 2009 until early this year.

His tenure at the Central Bank was briefly interrupted from 1987 to 1989, when he served as technical assistant to the Canadian Executive Director at the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

Haynes attended the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus, where he received a Bachelor of Science in Economics.

He later went on to the University of Western Ontario and earned a Master of Arts in Economics. He has also authored and co-authored a number of publications, principally on economic policy, debt and financial sector issues.

    Congrats. Don’t let them stress you. Of course I would like you to remember that when you look in the mirror you will see yourself, even wifey and children.

    Please keep your conscience clear.

    “he served as technical assistant to the Canadian Executive Director at the International Monetary Fund (IMF)”.

    By the looks and sound of it they will need him.

    Things kind-da quiet over at the Bank. Don’t know it the press ran out of ink or there is no funds to import paper, or maybe he doing a “great” job.. Chris stamp his approval for 5 years, but what will happen if his Party get kick out of office early 2018 ?.
    I remember the DIPPER said about one Central Governor after there was a change in office “I hope he will have the decency to resign, and don’t let me have the privilege of firing him”. ……( or words to that effect”.)
    I am quite sure CCC got it down pact “word for word”.

    It is a good thing that nobody will be doing that for Chris Sinker he should be gone long time cause the only person that have confidence in him is the Prime Minister and that is beauce he can’t do the job but he don’t like him.
