OECS Commission Explores Areas for Cooperation

The newly accredited Ambassador of the Republic of China (Taiwan) to Saint Lucia, H.E. Douglas C. T. Shen paid a courtesy call on the Director General of the OECS, H.E. Dr. Didacus Jules on the 8th May 2017.

The meeting also considered prospects for cooperation between Taiwan and the OECS, particularly with respect to human resource development in the fields of Agriculture, Health and Information Communication Technology (ICT). 

Ambassador Shen expressed Taiwan’s strong commitment to support and deepen the existing development partnership within the OECS region, and Taiwan’s interest generally in participating in and contributing to the development agenda of regional and international organisations.

The Director General undertook to provide support to Taiwan in its regional development endeavors in the OECS and applauded the significant strides Taiwan had made in investing in its education infrastructure to elevate it as a top performer globally in literacy, maths and the sciences. 

The Director General further added that the opportunity to learn from Taiwan’s experience was fitting for the OECS as the region sought to increase its human resource capacity through innovation to accommodate the rapidly evolving challenges and opportunities of the 21st century. 

Both parties agreed to maintain a close working relationship to explore and advance areas of mutual cooperation identified.

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.
