Friday, November 20, 2009 – Heads of governments of the OECS have hailed the 50th Meeting of the OECS Authority as another milestone for the sub-region. The meeting was held in Anguilla on the 19th and 20th of November.

Chairman of the Authority, Prime Minister of St. Kitts and Nevis, Honourable Denzil Douglas, says the OECS has recorded some notable success stories that must be celebrated.

“For the OECS in particular, achieving this milestone is a feat of no mean order. I can assure you ladies and gentlemen that as someone who has chaired all manner of meetings, that the meeting of the OECS Authority is no social gathering. Every ounce of physical and mental energy is usually drained from you, sucked up by the tightly packed agenda that speaks of nothing else but pure business,” Douglas said.

Meantime, Director General of the OECS Secretariat Dr. Len Ishmael, says the longevity of the Authority can be attributed to the outstanding leadership, and uncommon resilience of member states of the OECS. At the 50th Meeting of the OECS Authority, the Heads discussed the finalization of plans for a new treaty, which will lead to the establishment of an OECS Economic Union.
