Hippolyte To Visit Local Businesses


The Honourable Emma Hippolyte, Minister for Commerce, Manufacturing, Business Development, Cooperatives and Consumer Affairs, will along with a contingent of Management and Technical staff visit Businesses within the north of the island on February 08th, 2023.

This will be the second in a series of planned interventions with various Private sector leaders, entrepreneurs and industrial strongholds and forms part of the Ministry’s more proactive approach towards Private Sector development.

Through these visits, the Honourable Minister and her team will have a first-hand view of business operations and will profit the opportunity to discuss ongoing challenges, obstacles or opportunities impacting growth in our commercial and industrial sectors.

The Minister’s team will also discuss current interventions by the Ministry of Commerce including the ongoing review of the Fiscal Incentives regime, the resurgence of the Love Saint Lucia Campaign and efforts towards directing more of Government Procurement towards local suppliers.

Similar visits are planned for businesses in the south of Saint Lucia. The Ministry continues to engage the business sector through consultations with private sector associations.

  1. Here’s the thing, to me the most important business you need to talk about is, who influenced you to sign along with, the other daft cabinet members, the sale (give away) of our historically prized habours of our Island Nation? did you just go along and were you bullied by the Barron and others to sign off Soufriere – for 30 years with an option for a further 10 years at a cost of $ 47 million to be redeemed in 40 years? the biggest scam job in modern history in St. Lucia. Who’s going to be around in 40 years? Who got what for this rotten deal? its time to recall and tear up this rotten deal and save St. Lucia the embarrassment for being stupid. (I call on the Heavenly powers for help here)
