OECS Media Statement

The Commission of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) has the honour to offer on behalf of the Organisation and its Member States and people, warm congratulations, best wishes and fraternal solidarity to the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela on the occasion of the 206th Anniversary of Independence.

The Commission of the OECS and the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela have long enjoyed warm and friendly relations. This relationship is founded on shared values, and the universal principles of sovereign equality of States, non-interference in the internal affairs of States, mutual respect among States, democracy, solidarity, social justice, good governance and the rule of law.  

Over the years, the Government of Venezuela has contributed significantly to the development of OECS Member States through its solidarity, and generous assistance with the implementation of programmes and projects in the economic, social and cultural spheres. That contribution is deeply appreciated by Governments and people of the region.

It is the expectation of the Commission that the friendly relations that have existed between Venezuela and the OECS and its Member States will be further strengthened.

On behalf of the Organisation, its Member States and people, the Commission extends very best wishes for peace, stability and continued prosperity to the Government and people of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela on this special occasion.

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.
