Countries members of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS)

The countries members of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) recorded an upturn in their growth trend (from 0.2% in 2002 to 3.7% in 2003), driven by the construction and tourism sectors. Agriculture declined by 4.4% owing to a contraction in banana production and flat growth in the manufacturing sector (0.2%). In terms of individual countries, the highest growth rates were seen in Antigua and Barbuda and Grenada (almost 6%), while the lowest were posted in Saint Kitts and Nevis and Dominica (0.1% and 1%, respectively).
