Building a Secure and Equitable Hemisphere, including Haiti:

Leaders will engage on security challenges impacting the region’s stability, sustainable development, and economic prosperity.

Trade and Investment Roundtable:

A private, Leader-Level Roundtable will foster discussions with Canadian investors and business executives to enhance commercial relationships and promote investment opportunities in sectors such as renewable energy, infrastructure, and security.

In addition to participating in the Summit, Prime Minister Pierre will meet with officials and potential investors at the Foreign Commonwealth Office in London, England. While in London, the Prime Minister and the Minister for External Affairs, Hon. Alva Baptiste, will also host a town hall meeting with the diaspora on October 14, 2023.

Prime Minister Pierre and Hon. Alva Baptiste, on the sidelines of the Canada-CARICOM Summit in Toronto, will host another town hall meeting on Saturday, October 21, 2023.

These gatherings provide a unique opportunity for the Saint Lucian community in London and Toronto to engage in open and meaningful discussions about our shared goals, concerns, and aspirations.

The government of Saint Lucia values the perspectives of the Saint Lucian diaspora, and these town hall meetings exemplify the government’s commitment to inclusivity and engagement.

Minister for Education, Hon. Shawn Edward, will act as Prime Minister until October 22, 2023.

  1. Every week these guys travelling.
    1. We don’t even know the full delegation
    2. We don’t know what was the results
    3. No transparency on how much these trips cost tax payers
    4. I really need for my own good to compare all PMs travels i.e. cost and # of trips. Anybody has the details. I remember saying that Chas always traveling, but to me Kenson has travelled more that some pilots and PJP always somewhere in a meeting. I rather suspect those guys are bleding the public purse with all kinda allowances and per diem on their travels. St. Lucia is no better after all dem travels. Example All my travels hv shown me Hospitals in one box or connected blocks in Lucia I hear in 2023 we hv 25 bldgs to be called a hospital. When dem men travel they eh observing NUTTIN.

  2. While leading the st Lucian delegation at the Canada Caricom summit please explain that they are product’s of st Lucia and allu don’t like product’s of Canada
