Pierre Excited Over Guyana President’s Visit


Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre is excited over Wednesday’s visit to Saint Lucia by Guyana’s President, Dr. Irfaan Ali.

“We are excited to have him,” Pierre told reporters regarding the visit, during which Ali will address a joint parliament session.

The Saint Lucia Prime Minister noted that Saint Lucia and Guyana have enjoyed a long-standing friendship.

“There was a lot of movement. Saint Lucians went to Guyana and then Guyanese came to Saint Lucia,” Pierre recalled.

While in Saint Lucia as a special guest for the country’s 45th Independence Anniversary celebrations, President Ali will also address an extraordinary Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture luncheon.

“His Excellency Dr. Mohamed Irfaan Ali will speak on Opportunities to Do Business in Guyana,” a Chamber release said.

The release noted that under Ali’s stewardship, Guyana has the fastest-growing economy in the world.

It said President Ali will speak to Chamber business leaders on the offerings, insights, perspectives, and prospects for the Guyana Economy and how Saint Lucian business people can be part of its growth and success.

Apart from addressing the Chamber luncheon, the Guyana leader will hold a special meeting with the Guyanese community in Saint Lucia.

A meeting notice announced that the event would occur on Wednesday at the Financial Center from 3:00 pm to 5:30 pm.

According to the notice, the meeting will provide open dialogue on significant developments happening in Guyana and matters of concern to Guyana and Saint Lucia community members.

  1. Mr.PM according to the social status of our country with all this rampant murders where many families are disoriented all over the island “EXCITED” shouldn’t be the word of choice because at this point nothing is exciting in st.lucia unless you implement measures to deal with those social ills…you most likely elated and not excited,you really don’t know when and how to use the vocabulary.

  2. Pip obviously cannot comprehend irony; which explains his excitement in making Ali the guest of honor at St. Lucia’s “Independence” celebrations. The indepencence of Guyana has long been usurped by the World Economic Forum (WEF), who engineered Ali’s path to political prominence in Guyana, so that ExxonMobil now manipulates his puppet strings.

    Pip is pining for any puppet-master to relieve him of his responsibility for the “independence” of St. Lucian citizenry, but the puppet masters see no value in his being such an inanimate block of wood – a puppet show featuring him couldn’t draw a kindergarten class! St. Lucia’s value as a vote for US imperialism in the UN has long been over-sold as onerous (they own us) debt to the World bank & IMF – predator lenders to the world!
