Pierre Attends Regional Security Meeting


The Prime Minister, Hon. Philip J. Pierre will attend a meeting of the Regional Security System [RSS] Council of Ministers meeting in Grenada from Wednesday, March 22nd.

The meeting is expected to be productive and will provide a platform for leaders to
exchange ideas and discuss best practices for enhancing security in the region.

The Prime Minister will discuss the importance of regional leaders working together to address common challenges such as illegal arms trade, drug trafficking, and intelligence gathering.

The meeting will also provide an opportunity for the Prime Minister to reaffirm Saint Lucia’s
commitment to strengthening partnerships with neighbouring countries to promote peace and stability in the region

Currently, RSS troops are in Saint Lucia for three [3] weeks in the first instance, to arrest the proliferation of gang-related gun violence, particularly in the town of Vieux Fort.

Through a historic move, Hon. Pierre introduced and passed the “Suppression of Escalated Crime [Police Powers] Act” to address crime in designated areas.

The Prime Minister’s attendance at this meeting is part of a broader effort by Saint Lucia to
strengthen relationships with neighbouring countries and promote regional stability, especially as it grapples with the illegal arms trade.

Hon. Shawn Edward will act as the Prime Minister of Saint Lucia until Friday, March 24th.
