The retreat, which stretches over a two-day period, comes just days after the official commencement of their economic union.
The top echelon OECS governments – which are comprised of Prime Ministers, Premiers and Chief Ministers – will be discussing matters related to the operationalisation of the OECS Economic Union especially rules of procedure, free movement, update on the EU financing and the Revised Treaty of Chaguaramas.
Heads will also discuss the OECS Secretariat Manpower and Workforce Plan, review the resources deployed in representational activities at the regional and nationals levels and OECS Regional Security matters.
The union treaty commits member states to common policies in a wide number of areas and to free movement of citizens and goods across their borders.
The next step is to give the treaty force of law through an Act of Parliament in individual nations.
