  1. DONT FORGET TO SHARE WITH YA’LL FRIENDS AND PUT SOME IN YA’LL POCKETS. SO MANY GRANTS AND FUNDINGS AND LOANS LUCIA GETS WHAT HAPPENS TO THAT MONEY.

  2. IT sounds good, but will We pay the workers a decent minimum wage of $10+ per hour based on hours worked.. We must abolish the slave wages system and address our current problems..A perfect Solution to our current situation..

  3. One has to wonder why Taiwan is giving a continuous stream of grants to St. Lucia for a variety of projects and “initiatives”. What does St. Lucia offer in return? From an outsider’s perspective, it appears the concept of bilateral relations in St. Lucia amounts to nice trips abroad by officials who come back with millions of dollars funded by taxpayers in other countries.

  4. The Chinese are not doing things like this all over the Caribbean and Africa, In exchange they give the Chinese things like control of our seaports and tourism industries, allow their nationals to move in to our country in droves to open businesses etc. This is being done in Jamaica right now. In the future it is rumored that most of the Caribbean and Africa will be fully controlled by the Chinese. It is modern day colonialism,
