(PRESS RELEASE) – At Invest Saint Lucia (ISL), serving fellow citizens is of the utmost importance.
As COVID-19 has slowly started weaving into the Saint Lucian business reality, and the situation is unprecedented on a global scale, ISL wishes to assure you that our commitments remain the same.
ISL is monitoring new developments in the world, in the Caribbean region and at home, and is taking actions to protect employees, their families and its clients, because the agency understands that preparation and precaution are the best defences available. This also means that ISL would need to undergo some temporary changes during this period of uncertainty.
Practicing social distancing, the agency has decided to regulate travel between offices and discontinue face-to-face meetings. While ISL is still operating business, its offices will not be open to the public for any transactions and stakeholders are advised to use the telephone, emails, virtual meeting.
Duty Free Pointe Seraphine will not be welcoming cruise ship vessels to berth for an indefinite period as announced by Honourable Prime Minister Allen Chastanet. Given the impromptu drop in tourist arrivals, some stores have ceased operations while others remain open with fluctuating opening times. Shoppers are advised to call ahead to find out opening hours.
Invest Saint Lucia is still dedicated to serving the country, and information about the agency’s services is available on the Invest Saint Lucia website www.investstlucia.com, including applications for land. It is also easy to find some of the shopping complex’s services from the Duty Free Pointe Seraphine website (www.pointeseraphine.lc).
