About Us 

The University of the West Indies Department of Economics’ Annual Conference on the Economy (COTE 2015) is scheduled for October 8th -9th 2015, Learning Resource Centre (LRC), UWI St. Augustine.


COTE is an annual landmark event of the Department at which findings from quality research and other studies are presented to inform our stakeholders on economic and social policy. The conference highlights what we in the Department see as the key economic issues facing Trinidad & Tobago in particular and the wider Caribbean region by extension, in light of the present global environment.


This year’s conference honours former Head of Department and Current Director of the Centre for Health Economics (HEU), Professor Emeritus Karl Theodore, and will explore the theme “Managing Development in Caribbean Economies: The Key Role of Health, Public Policy and Social Security” consistent with research output of our honouree.
