“I must congratulate the Minister for Tourism not only for creating the kind of environment where people want to invest in this country, but the fact is that in a very challenging time Saint Lucia’s tourism arrivals are up over 20 percent and I must specifically say to him thank you because whilst he has been doing that, he has had to deal with the transition to a new Tourism Authority and put on Soleil the Summer Festival with the assistance of the new Events Company, and he has done it without having much resources.”

The sitting also saw the passing of the 2017/2018 Appropriations Bill.
