Charles Maynard, Dominica’s ambassador to the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) and the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), will form part of a Dominican delegation which will be in St. Kitts Tuesday for the signing of the OECS Economic Union Treaty.
Dominica has signaled that it will sign the accord, which is intended to further deepen integration among OECS member states.
Maynard says the treaty will benefit the sub-region, particularly in a time of global crisis.
“Looking at the global situation, the countries cannot remain as they are,” the ambassador asserted.
Maynard said the OECS Economic Union Treaty will signify that member countries share a single economic space, “so we treat each other as a single country,” he stated.
The signing ceremony is scheduled for 5 pm.
St. Kitts was also venue to the signing of the treaty of Basseterre that established the OECS in 1981.
The countries making up the OECS comprise Dominica, Antigua and Barbuda, Grenada, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, St. Lucia, Anguilla, the British Virgin Islands, St. Kitts and Nevis and Montserrat.
