The 17th Annual Cayman Economic Outlook announced

 

RF Group is pleased to announced that the RF Cayman Economic Outlook “RF CEO” Conference will be held on Friday, March 6th, 2020 at the Kimpton Seafire Resort & Spa, Grand Cayman.

The annual one-day event will tackle the theme “Colliding Global Interests: Assessing the Impact”. According to RF Group President, Michael Anderson, the 2020 theme recognizes the conflicts that have arisen over the last decade between entrenched interests of established economies or ‘super-powers’ and those that challenge the status quo. The conference will also address the tensions created by the emergence of new technologies and their impact on both employment and the concentration of wealth. The catastrophic damage to small island states resulting from global warming, perhaps the most relevant topic locally, wll also be discussed. In this case, large economies fail to recognize the impact and as such do not assist in covering the costs of the devastation.

“While we typically see these global issues as impacting larger countries and economies, whether its through rising oil costs, increased tariffs on imported goods from China, restrictions on goods purchased from various suppliers or coping with earthquakes and increasingly powerful storms, these colliding global interests actually have a direct impact on our daily lives in Cayman,” Mr. Anderson said. “This year’s conference seeks to identify both the key risks and opportunities arising out of these global conflicts, making us better able to manage their impact and potentially benefit from their consequences”.

The conference’s keynote speaker is Ambassador Nicholas Burns, a distinguished career diplomat who served under both Democratic and Republican Presidents. Ambassador Burns offers a bipartisan view of foreign affairs and global trends in the 21st century. Other speakers include Todd Buccholz, Economist and best-selling author, Peter Haas, Associate Director of the Brown University Humanity Centered Robotics Initiative, and best-selling author, Alex Banayan.

RF CEO is proudly sponsored by Campbells, Caribbean Utilities Company, Ltd, DART, Fidelity Bank (Cayman) Limited, Hurleys Media Group, Logic, OAM, PricewaterhouseCoopers Cayman, RF Group, Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) & Yello Media Group.

Conference registration is now open with Early Bird rates through February 9th. Further details are available online at rfceo.ky. RF CEO is an accredited Continuing Professional Development (CPD) provider.
