Launch of Public Dialogue on OECS Economic Union
Dominica has taken the lead and the rest of the OECS are expected to follow soon. Public dialogue on a proposed OECS Economic Union was launched in Roseau on Wednesday April 23rd 2008, at a grand ceremony at State House, the official residence of the President of Dominica.
Addresses were delivered by OECS Chairman, Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit of Dominica, OECS Director General Dr. Len Ishmael and the Chairman of the OECS Economic Union Task Force and Governor of the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank Sir Dwight Venner.
Members of the audience then had their turn to direct questions and comments to a panel comprised of members of the Economic Union Task Force (a group set up by OECS Governments to lead the process).
This programme brings you some of the highlights of the launching ceremony as captured by the Dominica GIS.
