Inaugural session of OECS Regional Assembly set for June 15
ST. JOHN’S, Antigua, Monday April 2, 2012 – Plans to host the inaugural session of the OECS Regional Assembly in Antigua on June 15 are moving into high gear.
That’s when OECS heads of government are expected to convene the inaugural session of the OECS Assembly on a date close to the anniversary of the signing of the Revised Treaty of Basseterre which established the OECS Economic Union.
The regional assembly is one of the new organs established under the Revised Treaty, and will provide a forum to debate issues affecting the sub-region.
The OECS Assembly will comprise both Government and Opposition representatives from each member state, in numbers that reflect their proportionate representation in their respective Parliaments.
