OECS DIPLOMATS ATTEND INTERNATIONAL TRAINING CYCLE IN MOROCCO

OECS DIPLOMATS ATTEND INTERNATIONAL TRAINING CYCLE IN MOROCCO

Media Release

Diplomats from OECS Member States recently completed a two-week training programme in International Diplomacy and Foreign Policy in the Moroccan capital of Rabat.

The main objective of the programme was the strengthening of capacity within the Foreign Ministries of Member States, and participants were exposed to a range of issues in the fields of international diplomacy, economic development, climate change and climate diplomacy, international migration, and developments on the African continent.

The activity was one outcome of a visit by a high level mission to the Eastern Caribbean in July 2018 aimed at strengthening the existing bonds of friendship and cooperation between OECS Member States and Morocco, and followed the inauguration of a joint mission in Rabat on October 18, 2018.

The programme was conducted by the Moroccan Academy for Diplomatic Studies (AMED) of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of the Kingdom of Morocco (MAECI). Countries were represented by a total of fifteen participants.

H.E. Abderrahim Kadmiri, Ambassador of the Kingdom of Morocco to the OECS said the activity represents an expression of Morocco’s continuing commitment to the development of the region.

H.E. noted that a number of similar activities are planned in keeping with this commitment, and that they would cater to practitioners from key sectors of the economies of Member States of the Organisation.

Participants considered the training programme to be a great success.

About The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States

Back to www.oecs.int

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.
