Hundreds of Saint Lucians living in the UK took the opportunity and came from far and wide to meet with Prime Minister Allen Chastanet during his trip to London this week.
On Saturday January 21, 2016, it was a packed room at an event organized by new Saint Lucia High Commissioner to London, Guy Mayers.
The audience, made up of Saint Lucians living in the United Kingdom, got a chance to put questions to Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet, about a variety of issues including investment, development, tourism, crime and the economy.
Joining the Prime Minister at the meet and greet session were Dr Gale Rigobert, Minister for Education, Innovation, Gender Relations and Sustainable Development and Guy Joseph, Minister for Economic Development, Housing, Urban Renewal, Transport and Civil Aviation who also took questions.
Before the open floor part of the meeting, the Prime Minister addressed the audience to give them an overview of his government’s plans for 2017 and beyond.
