A review of the programme of observances of the Community’s 25th anniversary which will be highlighted by a cultural programme during the St. Lucia conference is also on the agenda.

Ministers will be informed about the progress being made towards the establishment of the Regional Co-ordinating Mechanism for Drug Control Programmes.
