OECS Media Statement

The Commission of the Organisation of the Eastern Caribbean States has applauded the new Cabinet of the Government of Grenada led by the Hon. Prime Minister Dr. Keith Mitchell and the New National Party (NNP).

The Cabinet, which was sworn in on Sunday 25th March, comprises more women than men indicates the Government’s commitment to appointment upon merit with concern for gender equality and social inclusiveness.

OECS Director General Dr. Didacus Jules said that given the persistence of gender inequalities worldwide, the Government of Grenada was setting a shining example in affirming women’s rights and status at the highest political levels.

“Prime Minister Mitchell and the NNP are to be strongly applauded for their commitment to women’s participation in the political decision making of Grenada and keeping faith with global accords to advance gender equality” said Dr. Jules

“The degree of gender inclusiveness in any political system is a key indicator of the quality of a nation's democratic culture and to this end we again say to Grenada you are a light where pockets of darkness still exist for women in parts of the world, nothing should stop you from achieving your hopes aspirations and dreams.

“We also commend the Government for reaching out in a bipartisan spirit of inclusiveness and respect for political difference since the real contest lies not between political parties, but in maintaining Grenada’s competitiveness in an unsympathetic global environment" said Dr. Jules.

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.
