More than 200 entries have been received in response to a call from the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) for submissions to a photographic competition and exhibition.

The photographic display, which opens on Thursday, is the main feature of a wider exhibition celebrating the people of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean (OECS) countries.

Visitors to the exhibition will be able to explore the culture, history and economies of the OECS through the unique collection of artifacts, products and illustrations. It will also showcase information about the institutions through which the countries are intrinsically linked.

The exhibition is being mounted by the ECCB, in an effort to crystallise the concept of the OECS domain and to depict the unity and oneness of the different member countries.

Three OECS leaders, Prime Minister of St. Kitts/Nevis, Dr. Denzil Douglas; Prime Minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines Ralph Gonsalves and Prime Minister of St. Lucia and current Chairman of the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank Monetary Council Dr. Kenny Anthony, are slated to speak at the opening of the exhibition.

The bank’s Governor Sir K. Dwight Venner, who will deliver the opening remarks, will also chair the official opening ceremony of the exhibition tomorrow. Director-General of the OECS Secretariat Dr. Len Ishmael will also address the gathering.
