Mia Mottley argued : “At the centre of a repo agreement is a short-term cash loan, often between a central bank and a private asset manager owning a security. The asset manager borrows cash from the central bank, with the security acting as collateral for the loan. In most repos, the credit quality of the security is strictly limited and so the quality of the asset manager doesn't matter so much. If anything goes wrong at the asset manager, the central bank of course can sell the security. The repo markets are narrow in terms of eligible instruments but wide in terms of who can play,” “We in Latin America and the Caribbean region are stuck in a middle-income country trap all the while. Middle-income countries of mid-to-small size are even more dependent on the global economy than the poorest or the largest. So we are acutely vulnerable to systemic shocks like pandemics and climate change,” External link

We are satisfied that these six airlines can more than fill the immediate gap, particularly given the reduced travel within COVID,” “Having said that, I hope that we will be able to work with them and other private sector players who have also expressed an interest in being able to see how they can work either on their own or with some of the existing players in order to be able to fill the gap, simply because governments now have to use their funds to be able to deal with health expenditure, to be able to deal with water, to be able to deal with other forms of transport, to be able to deal with the fact that our tourism sector as well as our vulnerable populations all require us to hold their hands because they have come to zero revenue” External link

Mia Mottley argued : “At the centre of a repo agreement is a short-term cash loan, often between a central bank and a private asset manager owning a security. The asset manager borrows cash from the central bank, with the security acting as collateral for the loan. In most repos, the credit quality of the security is strictly limited and so the quality of the asset manager doesn't matter so much. If anything goes wrong at the asset manager, the central bank of course can sell the security. The repo markets are narrow in terms of eligible instruments but wide in terms of who can play,” “We in Latin America and the Caribbean region are stuck in a middle-income country trap all the while. Middle-income countries of mid-to-small size are even more dependent on the global economy than the poorest or the largest. So we are acutely vulnerable to systemic shocks like pandemics and climate change,” External link

We are satisfied that these six airlines can more than fill the immediate gap, particularly given the reduced travel within COVID,” “Having said that, I hope that we will be able to work with them and other private sector players who have also expressed an interest in being able to see how they can work either on their own or with some of the existing players in order to be able to fill the gap, simply because governments now have to use their funds to be able to deal with health expenditure, to be able to deal with water, to be able to deal with other forms of transport, to be able to deal with the fact that our tourism sector as well as our vulnerable populations all require us to hold their hands because they have come to zero revenue” External link
