CCAA is pleased to announce that in collaboration with the Caribbean Export Development Agency (CEDA), it was co-host of the Workshop on Caribbean Banking and the Caribbean International Financial Services Sector, which took place at the Curaçao Marriott Beach Resort and Emerald Casino on September 30 – October 1, 2015, in Willemstad, Curaçao.
