OECS Media Statement

The Commission of the Organisation of the Eastern Caribbean States joins all Antiguans and Barbudans and OECS Member States in congratulating Prime Minister The Hon. Gaston Browne and the Antigua and Barbuda Labour Party (ABLP) on their decisive election victory and return to Government.

OECS Director General Dr. Didacus Jules said the vote of confidence in the ABLP led by Prime Minister Browne was a vote for optimism and continuity in the direction the nation was heading in the face of an increasingly uncertain global environment.

“We commend Prime Minister Browne and the ABLP for their steady hand in guiding Antigua and Barbuda through the defining regional challenges of our time including the recent devastating hurricanes to tepid economic growth” said Dr. Jules.

‘The tremendous social and economic progress made by the ABLP under Prime Minister Browne is to be commended and demonstrates the vision and resilience of the Government’s manifesto and the universal principals it holds dear – inclusiveness, good governance, accountability and transparency.

“The Commission of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States will continue to work tirelessly, side by side with the Government of Antigua and Barbuda to help the nation fulfil its development objectives in new and innovate ways we are able to achieve as a regional body.

“This includes for example working to harness global expertise and resources to ensure Antigua and Barbuda remains resilient in the face of future extreme weather events. 

“On behalf of the staff of the OECS Commission we offer our heartfelt congratulations to Prime Minister Browne and the Government for their next term of Government" said Dr. Jules.

God bless the people and nation of Antigua and Barbuda.

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.
