Detailed description of project Back

The Revised Treaty of Basseterre Establishing the OECS Economic Unionentered into force on January 21, 2011. Within the OECS Economic Union, goods, services, capital and legal and natural persons are expected to move and engage in economic activity without impediment. Additionally, the Revised Treaty makes provision for the harmonization of laws and delegation of legislative competence by Member States to the Organisation, as well as policy convergence, all of which will have a direct impact on the lives and welfare of OECS people.

Activities have been focused on enhancing the institutional capacity of the OECS to stimulate, manage and coordinate, the economic integration process, improving sectoral policy harmonization in the Tourism and Agricultural sectors, boosting the competitiveness and export capacity of the OECS Private Sector, as well as building the sustainable institutional capacity at the OECS Competitiveness Business Unit (CBU) formerly the Export Development Unit.

The overall objective is to continue to promote the OECS Economic Union and the Revised Treaty of Basseterre at all levels, engaging a broad and varied number of OECS nationals.

The specific objective is to promote and build awareness of the OECS agenda towards Regional Integration through generation and documentation of Lessons Learnt and Case Studies.
