Protocol Amending Treaty Establishing Eastern Caribbean Telecommunications Authority (ECTEL) signed by Prime Ministers

ECTEL Media Release

Montego Bay, Jamaica   The Eastern Caribbean Telecommunications Authority (ECTEL) announces the signing of the Protocol Amending the Treaty Establishing the Eastern Caribbean Telecommunications Authority (ECTEL) by Prime Minister Allen Chastanet of Saint Lucia and Prime Minister Keith Mitchell of Grenada during CARICOM’s 39th Regular Meeting of the Conference of Heads of Government held in Montego Bay, Jamaica. 

This Protocol modifies the Treaty to address the myriad of changes which have occurred in the telecommunications industry since the signing of the Treaty establishing ECTEL on 4th May 2000 at St. George’s, Grenada.  Some of the notable changes include convergence between services, networks and technologies in the telecommunications sector.

This Protocol also acts as a prerequisite for the promulgation of the Electronic Communications Bill and a new suite of Regulations paving the way for ECTEL to address the many issues facing the telecommunications market today, such as; quality of service, consumer protection, and more affordable access to retail and wholesale telecommunications services.

The Protocol will now be presented to the Prime Ministers of the other ECTEL Member States of Dominica, St. Kitts and Nevis and St. Vincent and the Grenadines for consideration and signature.

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.
