The OECS Commission expresses its utmost appreciation to the outgoing Head of the Delegation of the European Union to Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean, His Excellency Mikael Barfod.

His Excellency Dr. Didacus Jules, Director General of the OECS said that it had been an honor to welcome Ambassador Mikael Barfod to the OECS and that during his distinguished tenure, the evident strengthening of associations between the EU and the OECS had been elevated for the region’s shared security and prosperity.

“Ambassador Barfod has consistently provided tenacious support for the OECS’s social, cultural and economic agenda as enshrined in the Treaty of Basseterre and I am assured that the strong foundations laid as part of our bilateral arrangements with the EU will grow as part of his legacy” said Dr. Jules.

“Through generous human, technical and financial resources, Ambassador Barfod has facilitated the development of Member States, via a range of Programs that have ultimately invested in strengthening the governance architecture of the region.

“It is through this architecture that we find the avenues for greater social and economic opportunities and it is through the deepening of the friendship created that we find expression of the unity of purpose that binds the OECS and the EU in the pursuit of prosperity and security.  To these ends Ambassador Barfod has been instrumental.
