A new shareholder agreement for regional carrier Liat could be on the horizon.

That is if Antigua and Barbuda and the other member states of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean (OECS) and Barbados are successful in coming to an agreement to increase the countries with shares in the regional carrier.

The announcement comes from the Chairman of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States Authority, Dr. Ralph Gonsalves.


Dr Gonsalves was speaking during the closing ceremony of the OECS heads of government meeting.

He says Prime Minister of Barbados – Mia Mottley, who was a guest at the sitting has agreed to examine the question of making residents of the sub-group be able to transit Barbados using only a picture I.D. rather than a passport as is currently required.

 Dr. Gonsalves says Antigua and Barbuda will now join a joint Brussels mission, headed by a single ambassador who is to be selected.
