Standard's chief economist to visit Island

Standard Bank’s chief economist will be giving his views on the future of the global economy next week.

Goolam Ballim will make a presentation to the company's guests in a breakfast briefing Wednesday.

Mr Ballim was just 33 when he was appointed Group Economist, five years after joining Standard Bank's Economics Division.

Senior manager of institutional banking James Stokoe, who is also the breakfast's host, says the talk is sure to be a fascinating one as the world faces a recession.
