OAS Commission Scheduled To Visit SVG

An Organization of American States (OAS) Commission is scheduled to visit St. Vincent and the Grenadines in April to address Anti-Corruption issues.

The Commission will meet with representatives from Oversight Bodies responsible for preventing, detecting and punishing corruption, to review the manner in which the Inter-American Convention against Corruption MESICIC is being implemented.

The purpose of the visit is to collect information in the field about how these organs perform their functions, which will serve as inputs for the preparation of the report to be drawn up by the MESICIC on St. Vincent and the Grenadines in its September 2014 meeting.

It is expected that the Commission will meet with representatives of civil society, the private sector, professional associations and academics in order to address topics related to the issues being analysed in the Fourth Round of the MESICIC

The on-site visit to St. Vincent and the Grenadines is scheduled for April 22nd to 24th.
