In 1968, members of the Civil Service Association Trade Union (which represented the majority of civil servants in Barbados) made an application and were granted permission to form a Savings Society. By 1969 the objective of the executive of this Society was to have it registered as a Credit Union. On May 6th, 1970 the Barbados Civil Service Association Credit Union Limited (as we were then known) was registered. In 1977, in order to broaden its bond of membership, the name was changed to Barbados Public Workers' Co-operative Credit Union Limited (BPWCCUL). This bond would now allow the inclusion of former civil servants, staff of statutory boards, husbands, wives and children of members as well as employees of the National Union of Public Workers.

When Bank of The Bahamas received the Euromoney Award for Excellence this year for the fourth time and was named Best Bank in The Country by The Banker, part of the Financial Times Group, for the third time during the same fiscal year, it was an historic milestone in the nation and for the young bank. No other Bahamian bank had ever come close to achieving such international recognition. Yet Managing Director Paul McWeeney hesitated to publicize the two awards, believing the news should be shared with shareholders and stakeholders as opposed to making it a reason for boasting when so many in the nation are still struggling. The Bank, he believes, should continue to do what it has done to grow from infancy 24 years ago to where it is now, rather than basking in recognition.

The Central Bank of Barbados was established in May 1972 by the Government of Barbados to advance the pace of economic development in the country. Prior to 1972, the East Caribbean Currency Authority (ECCA) was the institution responsible for the management of monetary matters for most of the smaller Eastern Caribbean countries, including Barbados. However, the ECCA did not regulate financial institutions, and since it held responsibility for a number of territories, there was no guarantee that ECCA’s policies would be acceptable, or appropriate to each jurisdiction.
