H.E. Ms. Bachelet will therefore engage the OECS Heads of Government at a luncheon meeting in order realise this effort.

Upon her arrival in Saint Lucia, President Bachelet will receive an Official Welcome and will then pay a courtesy call on the Governor General, Her Excellency Dame Calliopa Pearlette Louisy, followed by a meeting with Saint Lucia’s Prime Minister Honourable Allen Chastanet and the Cabinet of Ministers. H.E. Ms. Bachelet will also be meeting with the Members of Parliament.

    • Why make this comment. Look at the country and the natives. If you are in a predominantly country with Caucasians do you expect a black person to run tge country or vice versa. If you are from china who do you feel most lijely to be their leader? . No need to play the "white" card.
