CASTRIES, St. Lucia (November 12, 2013) - Cogent analysis of developments in the Caribbean banking and financial services sector will be speedier this year with the use of tweets from the respected Caribbean and international news service, Global News Matters (GNM). In addition to its thoughtful analyses, Global News Matters will provide succinct and lively tweets updating its readers on the proceedings of the Caribbean Association of Banks' 40th annual general meeting and conference which gets underway at Sandals Grande St Lucian Spa and Beach Resort. Speaking ahead of the November 13 to 16 conference, GNM managing director Melissa Marchand said the bankers' meeting has a dynamic agenda which takes a fresh look at opportunities in the financial services sector: "The global economy is climbing out of this historical recession and we have to track the trends and opportunities for our subscribers and readers," she said. "We had to be in attendance," declared Marchand, who expects the Caribbean bankers' conference "will provide insights into core sector fundamentals and explore innovative technologies that will change the way banking is conducted in the Caribbean." Global News Matters will post live Tweets and updates from the conference, highlighting advances and giving global coverage to what is forthcoming in the key financial sector: "This coverage is important not only for players in the Caribbean banking sector, but it is also of great interest to international investors who have extensive portfolio coverage in the region," added Marchand. "Time is money for all of us but having a little edge on information about trends emerging in the financial services sector could make a big difference for savvy investors," contended Marchand. Held under the theme "Redefining Strategy - The Leadership Challenge", the conference will address topics such as increasing shareholder value, the role of social media in customer relations, growth challenges, and risk strategies. Global News Matters produces a twice monthly Caribbean news intelligence service called Market Dynamics Caribbean - "regional news for global leaders" - on a subscription basis.
