St Lucia to host second meeting of OECS parliamentary opposition leaders
Parliamentary opposition leaders in the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) will be reviewing the status of the Revised Treaty of Basseterre with an update on the Economic Union at a regional meeting in Saint Lucia scheduled for Wednesday, September 16, 2015.
At this second meeting of opposition leaders in the OECS, the bloc’s growth and development strategy as well as the accession of Martinique to associate membership will be among matters to be tabled for discussion.
The OECS Commission said it recognises that the upcoming meeting will be a significant opportunity to inform this key stakeholder group on developments towards the regional integration movement in areas such as the free circulation of goods and the free movement of persons.
It is also anticipated that such a meeting will also strengthen the capacity of parliamentary opposition leaders to share vital information on the regional integration movement with their constituents.
