PM Chastanet

(SNO) — The construction of a cruise ship port in Vieux Fort will be on the agenda as Prime Minister Allen Chastanet meets with Carnival Cruise Line officials in Maimi over the next two days.

The new port is part of investments outlined by the government that it said will complement the redeveloped Hewanorra International Airport.

According to Chastanet, these two investments will give Saint Lucia a strategic advantage in the region.

He stated that the new port and the redeveloped airport will enable people “to get off their chartered flights and go straight onto the cruise ships, within minutes”.

“The Prime Minister is accompanied by Minister for Infrastructure, Ports, Energy and Labour, Honourable Stephenson King and Acting General Manager of SLASPA, Mr. Daren Cenac,” a statement from his office said. “While in Miami, the Prime Minister will also meet with management of MSC Cruises to continue discussions on the Castries port and Saint Lucia’s hospitality training programme and facilitating employment for young persons in the cruise industry.”

In Chastanet’s absence, Minister for Economic Development, Housing, Urban Renewal, Transport and Civil Aviation, Guy Joseph, will serve as acting prime minister.

  1. That's his fathers' son - Business, development, Jobs and money in your pocket.
    What I would really see happen, is a redeveloped V/Fort Harbour, that would give St.Lucia
    two first Class deep water Harbours and two International Airports. That's what Developers
    want to see and also a stable Government. V/Fort will be the next Las Vegas South. 'The Son also rises'.
    Who the hell thinks there's no confidence in the 'Son' and prepared to embarrass themselves to prove it?
