Prime Minister of St. Lucia Allen M. Chastanet has shared his vision for the implementation of two initiatives that he believes will assist CARICOM in finding solutions for surmounting some of the economic challenges confronting the regional body.

In a recent meeting with CARICOM Secretary General Ambassador Irwin LaRocque, Prime Minister Chastanet mooted the idea of a tourism summit, which he said should be convened by the Caribbean Community in the short to medium term.

He emphasized the need for the Council of Finance and Planning – COFAP, to convene an urgent round of joint discussions, noting that they must undertake a more active role in an environment where the region is confronting several critical micro and macro-economic challenges.

COFAP is also responsible for economic policy coordination, along with the financial and monetary integration of Member States.

The Prime Minister addressed the formal opening of the Georgetown held CARICOM summit on July 5, 2016.

CARICOM Secretary General Ambassador Irwin LaRocque visited St. Lucia on September 6, 2016.

    That’s what one can call a leader even though one may not like his policies or vibes.
    But he brings to the table something to chew about.

    But on this island of Dominica the boast is selling the island’s passport all over the globe
    after 16 years of a ruling party…again it just sums up the caliber of leader Dominica has being choked with…..

    the CBI, will crash out soon and their will be nothing sustainable to show, don’t dominicans think what will happen when the labor regime can’t pay it’s political motives to win a election? they will turn on their own regime and it will be chaotic…

    but it’s dominica dem lack any good common sense..
