The Committee was given the task of (i) achieving consensus on the functions and format for the Organization, (ii) clarifying its relationship with the Caribbean Association of Industry and Commerce (CAIC), and (iii) structuring its financing mechanisms.
Draft constituent documents for the proposed OECS Private Sector Organization have been prepared for circulation to national private sector entities and the establishment of a business forum pursuant to a recommendation made to the OECS Heads of Government.
