Prime Minister, Honourable Dr. Kenny D. Anthony, wishes to advise that he has regretfully accepted the resignation of Dr. Ubaldus Raymond from the Senate and, consequently, as Parliamentary Secretary in the Ministry of Commerce, Business Development, Investment and Consumer Affairs.
Dr. Raymond has resigned his position to allow him to take up the prestigious senior post of Chief Economist in the Government of the Turks and Caicos Islands.
Dr. Raymond is the holder of a Ph.D. degree in Development Economics from Howard University in Washington D.C., USA and prior to returning to Saint Lucia to contest the 2011 General Elections in the constituency of Castries North for the Saint Lucia Labour Party, he served for seven years as Senior Economist in the Department of the Environment and the DC Public Service Commission in Washington DC and as Assistant Professor of Economics at Florida A&M University in the Department of Economics.
Ubaldus ‘Jimmy’ Raymond possesses a wealth of experience and training in areas such as Monetary and Fiscal Policy, Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, International Finance, Corporate Finance, and Managerial Economics, which will serve him in good stead in his new position.
The Prime Minster, on behalf of the Cabinet of Ministers, wishes Dr. Ubaldus Raymond the very best in his new position and is confident that he will continue to make our country proud.
