“We anticipate that 2020 will be an extremely promising year for Saint Lucia as we strive to continue the positive momentum that we saw in 2019 which included record tourism arrivals, continued national economic growth, further reductions in unemployment and other initiatives and projects that have benefited and will continue to benefit thousands of Saint Lucians,” he wrote.

He added: “As we continue the work of Building a New & Progressive Saint Lucia which benefits ALL, some of the issues being discussed in Cabinet today include scholarships, the continuation of the Island-wide Road Rehabilitation project (the largest in our country’s history), the 2020 Population Census and strategic interventions in the areas of Healthcare, Justice & Security, Agriculture, Education and specific initiatives to continue supporting the most vulnerable in our society.”

The prime minister said the government needs the participation and support of every Saint Lucian “if we are to take our beloved country to new heights of prosperity”.

“Let’s make 2020 one of the best year’s in Saint Lucia’s history!” he concluded.

  1. When we allow our roads to deteriorate do we boast about 'largest in our country's history' if we are spending more money? We need to have a mechanism in place where road rehabilitation is a continuous process. Everything should not be about what makes me look good but rather what is in the country's best interest.
