Prime Minister Chastanet aims to broaden Taiwan-Saint Lucia cooperation to include the areas of investment and trade. Ahead of his visit, the prime minister explained that he looked forward to the engagement with the president of Taiwan.

Accompanying the prime minister on the visit will be Hon. Sarah Flood Beaubrun, the Minister with Responsibility for External Affairs; Hon. Dr. Ubaldus Raymond, the Minister in the Ministry of Finance; and Jemma Lafeuille, Chief Economist in the Ministry of Finance.

In the Prime Minister’s absence, Minister for Economic Development, Housing, Urban Renewal, Transport and Civil Aviation, Hon. Guy Joseph will serve as acting Prime Minister.
