Trip to Asia fruitful reports PM Chastanet

PRESS RELEASE:-Prime Minister of Saint Lucia Hon. Allen M. Chastanet has kept his word to report back to the nation on his China visit. The island’s leader says he is very impressed and confident that the track record of Desert Star Holdings along with other equine investments is above board and in good standing.

Mr. Chastanet journeyed to the People’s Republic of China at the invitation of major investor and Chairman of Desert Star Holdings Limited Mr. Teo

AhKing who has applied to establish a multi-billion dollar resort development in Saint Lucia. The Prime Minister says his host has proven to be very transparent.

“Mr. Ah Khing and his team have really opened themselves up to scrutiny and transparency. They welcome it and they understand that given the magnitude of the project they are proposing, questions must be asked. Beyond that, they have invited me to every event and function that could possibly give the island extensive exposure. As Prime Minister, I believe valuable linkages were formed and should redound to some good opportunities for our economy”.

Prime Minister Chastanet was making specific reference to the opportunities for networking and meeting of investors. One such event was the 2016 China Equine Cultural Festival (CECF) which is a premier, lifestyle and thoroughbred racing festival in mainland China. The event draws together captains of industry, leaders and international representatives of international thoroughbred centres as well as global media.

Next the Prime Minister heads to Taiwan to join the Minister in the Ministry of External Affairs Hon. Sarah Flood-Beaubrun for a number of meetings with Taiwan government officials.

The final leg of the Prime Minister’s trip will conclude in Canada, where he is expected to hold talks with potential investors. While in Canada, the Prime Minister will take four days of personal leave in order to settle his daughter into her new school year.

    Our pm is a complete idiot. He went to China not to investigate the integrity of the developers but to prove the critics wrong. Let the idiot dig his own sinking hole.

    Is the above really the extent of a report back to your employers (St Lucian People) on the China Trip!

    Secondly, if the Chinese investors are so open to scrutiny and transparency, why can’t the contract be disclosed to the Nation!!!!

    Why is there some supposed clause that the details of the contract has to remain secret.

    St Lucians, it’s our fault for being so partisan.

    You politicians both YELLOW and RED are making a mockery of the people of St Lucia SHAME you’ll. This nonsense has to stop.

    Why mostl of you are flooding the Chinese restaurants instead of Lucians restaurants. It is cheaper, good, satisfying, more persons are able to purchase a small meal and more. They all received permits to operate here NoBody said to stop them. Now because you hear millions you are shouting. Go for a head shoot in the sea waters
