  • Synopsis
    The Caribbean Development Bank has, over the last twenty-five years, focused its efforts on development of the Commonwealth Caribbean countries, and in particular, the seven small island states that form the Organization of East Caribbean States. It is small in comparison with the two development banks above it: the Inter-American Development Bank and the World Bank, but some of the advantages of smallness, as well as the proximity to and continuity of relations with the partner countries are demonstrated in this study.
