Antigua and Barbuda’s Prime Minister, The Hon Gaston Browne has lamented at the delay in convening the OECS Assembly of Ministers.
The Nation’s Leader made his position known while addressing the 2nd sitting of the OECS Ministers, a body which has not gathered together since its inauguration in 2012.
He called on Members to take advantage of the avenue to share ideas and learn from regional partners and called on the chairman of the OECS to convene more frequent of the OECS Assembly.
PM Browne states that the OECS Assembly is a golden opportunity for member states which should not be taken lightly as it provides many avenues for cooperation.
The Prime Minister notes that more frequent gatherings of the OECS Assembly provides an opportunity for bi-partisan discussions and collaboration, as opposition members and present governments find common ground in the OECS space to advance regional development.
Representatives from all nine member states of the OECS are present in Antigua today for the second Assembly of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) meeting.
Antigua and Barbuda was the host of the inaugural OECS Assembly meeting on 10th August, 2012.
