A high –level OAS delegation completed the mission which wrapped up a two -day fact finding exercise on August 15th and 16th.

The Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda outlined that the project will be a critical tool in the developmental process, while recognizing that both governmental and non-governmental agencies would benefit greatly from the uniformed address system that will be created.

Senator Parker outlined that this proposed address system will serve as a valuable tool for emergency vehicle dispatch, planning or other health and disaster prevention needs of the state and expressed optimism for the potential the project holds for efficient service delivery for residents.

The OAS team noted that due to the extensive work done in Antigua & Barbuda to install a state of the art Cad-astral System in 2006 and 2010, and the advanced state of the street naming initiatives, the country is positioned to advance the process of the address database.
