Cayman Economic Outlook conference provides attendees with food for thought

While Premier Hon. Alden McLaughlin’s ‘towering’ announcement dominated headlines coming out of Thursday’s (28 February) Royal Fidelity Cayman Economic Outlook conference a full slate of guest speakers offered up plenty of additional food for thought for attendees.

‘Dynamic new world: Braving the turmoil’ was the theme of 2019’s conference.

Royal Fidelity director Ross McDonald set the tone for a day packed with ideas.

“Last year we identified the threat of disintegration as an unintended outcome of globalization, this seems like a real paradox,” said Mr. McDonald in his remarks from the podium. “The same combination of global integration and technological change which have driven globalization are also manifesting in a heightened level of anxiety, nationalism and protectionism.”

This year’s featured speaker at the conference was professional surfer and motivational speaker Mark Mathews.
