  1. St. Lucia has hosted numerous regional organisations for the past three months. I am not saying that it is a wrong move but we have to set our priorities straight especially at this crucial time. I would assume that for this to occur, our government is expected to spend a certain amount of our country’s money to facilitate this. Not wise moves at this time whilst our roads are in deplorable conditions, plus no sugar to continue with my small business.
