  1. The snobs have arrived. Who wants them here? Why are they only now interested in Saint Lucia? Please don't trust the Brirish? Saint Lucia should and must go East for FDI. You are wasting your time with those Brits, they have never truly been interested in our region. The BOKA Group is just another empty shell looking for opportunities to buy up our precious and limited real estate assets. Be warned Saint Lucia!!
