The revitalisation of the OECS Business Council was the focus of discussions at a recent meeting hosted by the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), through the Competitive Business Unit (OECS CBU), the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) and Members of the OECS Business Council.
The gathering was held in Antigua and Barbuda from February 20-21, 2020.
The OECS Business Council was created to provide a collective response to common issues which impact the business environment in the region, and by extension, the final consumer and includes one representative from each OECS Member State.
In the main, the two-day meeting focused on the re-establishment of the OECS Business Council. The participants discussed multiple matters including the importance of the entity in the broader process of regional integration, its structure and governance framework, and a sustainable development strategy.
