(Antigua Observer) – A new shareholder agreement for regional carrier Liat could be on the horizon. This according to Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves who was speaking during the closing ceremony of the OECS heads of government meeting.
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.
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.
