OAS invited to hold 2025 general assembly in Antigua – Barbuda

WASHINGTON, USA –  The Organization of American States (OAS) has been invited to hold the 55th Regular Session of its General Assembly in Antigua and Barbuda in June 2025.

This invitation was extended by Antigua and Barbuda’s Ambassador to the US and the OAS, Sir Ronald Sanders, during a meeting of the OAS Permanent Council in Washington on June 18.

Ambassador Sanders emphasized that his government issued the invitation due to Antigua and Barbuda’s steadfast support for the OAS and its commitment to advancing shared ideals of freedom, equity, and justice. He highlighted the country’s capability to host significant international gatherings, as demonstrated by the successful hosting of the 4th UN Conference on Small Island Developing States less than a month ago.

“The success of hosting the UN conference, and now inviting the OAS to come to Antigua and Barbuda, underlines the pride of our people in promoting global dialogue and contributing to international cooperation,” said the veteran diplomat.

The invitation was met with sustained applause from the ambassadors and senior diplomats of the Organization’s member states, indicating a formal acceptance of the invitation by the 54th General Assembly, which will be held in Paraguay next week.

Sir Ronald concluded his remarks by stating:

“Antigua and Barbuda eagerly anticipates hosting a vibrant assembly that will not only facilitate dialogue but will inspire decisive action and foster stronger bonds among the OAS Nations, for the benefit of all, both large and small.”
