The William G Demas Memorial Lecture

The William G. Demas Memorial Lecture showcases the best intellectual discourse available regionally and internationally. This is the twentieth edition of the lecture and, over the years, the spirit of William Demas’ scholarship has been upheld by distinguished lecturers who have all been committed to economic development.
This year, the Lecture will take place on Tuesday June 4th, 2019 at the Central Bank Auditorium, in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago.  The focus of the lecture is based on ICT and the digital economy. 
The W.G Demas Lecture, as it is also commonly known, has become one of the highpoints of the CDB’s Annual Meeting. When the idea was conceptualised 20 years ago, the architects envisaged the forum as a fitting tribute to a man who was known for his scholarship; his enjoyment of intellectual discourse; his role in promoting regional integration; and of course, his contribution to the Caribbean Development Bank as its Second President.
