BVI Premier Supports New OECS Chairman

BVI Premier Honourable Ralph T. O’Neal has expressed full support to the Prime Minister of St. Kitts and Nevis Dr. Denzil Douglas, after he was appointed the chairman of the OECS Authority, and to the work of the OECS Secretariat under his leadership.

Dr. Douglas should have assumed this post in November 2009, but the OECS Director General Dr. Len Ishmael asked him to take up the chairmanship a month earlier. The decision of the new Chief Minister Honourable Reuben Meade not to assume the chairmanship of the OECS Authority to the Prime Minister of Montserrat followed the recent change of its Government.

Subject to approval by all members of the OECS Authority, Dr. Douglas will assume the chairmanship at the 50th Meeting of the OECS Authority which will take place in Anguilla in November 19-20. The previous 49th Meeting of the the highest decision making body of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States was held in the British Virgin Islands in May 20-22.
