Prime Minister and Minister for Finance and Economic Affairs, Hon. Dr. Kenny D. Anthony will address the nation on Sunday, January 6, 2013.
The address will focus on the economic challenges facing Saint Lucia and the ongoing wage negotiations with public service unions.
According to the Prime Minister, “The issue of wage negotiations is not solely a matter between the government and the public sector unions. It involves the government, the unions and the entire country. It is vital that all sectors of our society and economy understand the nature of the problems confronting us because there will be consequences for all citizens. For this reason, I will lay out the full facts, review the performance of the economy, and the implications of any wage settlement for the future prospects of our economy.”
The address will be delivered on all television networks at 8 p.m.
