The Saint Lucia Air and Sea Ports Authority (SLASPA) is delighted to have participated in and witnessed the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Government of Saint Lucia and Global Ports Holding (GPH) ltd.
Through this agreement, SLASPA anticipates a transformation of the island’s cruise product, more so, from the standpoint of the development of the port infrastructure.
Over the past few months, we have formally engaged with the various agencies and entities involved in developing the framework that will assist in realizing the expected deliverables of this undertaking.
Coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic, global cruisers require experiences that differ from destination to destination. We understand that this proposed investment by GPH, supported by the government and SLASPA, will enable Saint Lucia to modernize its cruise tourism product.
This initiative is aligned with the varied strategies of SLASPA and efforts to improve Saint Lucia’s maritime industry.
These plans aim to enhance maritime business, creating opportunities for local SMEs, the youth, and private sector entities, participating in the maritime industry.
The port council and management team are encouraged by this MOU and remain eager to realize the envisaged outcome of mutual benefits. We stand ready to continue our collaboration as we move forward with this partnership.

The only thing you omitted was the fact that those ports will be leased to this foreign entity. SLASPA and the Government, where was your head, up yours asses as usual. What a bunch of buffoons, a bunch of educationed fools.
Thank you for your assistance in St. Lucia, we need ALl the Help we can get on this majestic island!
So, what is the strategic plan for the sorry excuse of a container port that exist in Castries. Will it be moved to Cul-de-Sac or will it remain at present location. Tour buses have to compete with port equipment and trucks to get cruise passengers out of the port safely. Apparently, SLASPA is waiting for an accident and get sued by the cruise line before they act. The ferry terminal is another issue, but we will leave that for another show
No point in modernising your cruise tourism product if you dont cut the crime in this country, who will want to come here?
Yes so true. St Lucia is getting a very bad reputation internationally. Clean up the crime first!
