Building Successful Coalition of Services Industries

OECS Trade Policy Unit holds one-day knowledge sharing workshop

The OECS Commission is working towards the establishment of a regional umbrella body to maximise networking opportunities for OECS services firms with Global Services Coalitions in an effort to achieve commercial growth opportunities and greater participation in policy formulation and reform. 

The Commission, in partnership with the International Trade Centre (ITC), held a one day web conference on June 19th 2017 on “Building Successful Coalition of Services Industries: Best Practices, Information Exchange and Knowledge Sharing.”

The aim of the joint initiative, which featured presentations from the European Services Forum (ESF), the Indonesia Services Dialogue (ISD) and the Philippines Services Coalitions (PSC), was to provide an opportunity for established Coalitions of Services Industries and Services Policy Decision Makers within the OECS Economic Union to gain insight into the experiences and best practices of other International Services Coalition Bodies.

The meeting supports ongoing interventions of OECS Member States to build and maintain financially sustainable Coalitions that successfully promote common goals and policies for improving the national, regional and international business climate for OECS Services Entrepreneurs.

The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) is an International Organisation dedicated to economic harmonisation and integration, protection of human and legal rights, and the encouragement of good governance among independent and non-independent countries in the Eastern Caribbean. The OECS came into being on June 18th 1981, when seven Eastern Caribbean countries signed a treaty agreeing to cooperate with each other while promoting unity and solidarity among its Members. The Treaty became known as the Treaty of Basseterre, so named in honour of the capital city of St. Kitts and Nevis where it was signed. The OECS today, currently has ten members, spread across the Eastern Caribbean comprising Antigua and Barbuda, Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, St Vincent and The Grenadines, British Virgin Islands, Anguilla and Martinique.
