Brussels, 5 June 2020/OACPS: The Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS) today celebrates its 45th anniversary since it was founded on 6 June 1975. This year, the Organisation also celebrates its first year as the Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States.

The theme of this year’s celebration is “OACPS 3.0: The Power of Change” referencing the three African, Caribbean and Pacific regions as they become the power of change in the international arena, forging together to become the OACPS through the revised Georgetown Agreement which came into force this year.

This year, due to COVID-19, OACPS Day will be unlike any other as it will be celebrated virtually. As such, we have asked our Members to send their messages of congratulations which we are posted below.

We invite you to post your photos and memories on Twitter and Facebook, tagging us with the hashtag #OACPSDay45 and using our handle, @PressACP.

Happy OACPS Day!
