The authority at this meeting will pay particular interest to the non-independent member countries of the OECS. The discussion will be set in the context of current Britain’s policy regarding the islands.

Also down for discussion are the functional cooperation issues relating to the environmental levy and the formation of the sub-regional ministerial mechanism for cruise tourism matters. OECS heads of government will also receive a report from a committee set up to make specific recommendations for a more reliable mechanism through which member governments might make their financial contributions to the organization.

The authority will also consider a number of outstanding institutional matters. The authority meeting will be preceded by the opening ceremony to be held on Wednesday May 27th in Tortola.
