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 came from the Chairman of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) Authority, Dr. Ralph Gonsalves while speaking during the closing ceremony of the OECS heads of government meeting.
According to the Antigua Observer, Dr. Gonsalves said Barbados Prime Minister Mia Mottley, who was a guest at the meeting 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 also announced that Antigua and Barbuda will now join a joint Brussels mission, headed by a single ambassador who is to be selected.
