Prime Minister Allen Chastanet led a tour of the Castries market on Saturday accompanied by architects with plans to transform the image of the city.
Castries Mayor, Peterson Francis, who was also present for the visit, said the plan calls for the modernization of vending in Castries.
“We have to reengineer what’s happening in Castries as far as vending is concerned,” he said.
Mayor Francis wants more St Lucian products to be sold in the Castries market.
“In the market, we’ll license people to sell products so we’re trying to make sure its St Lucian products. We’re trying to get the manufacturers involved in it,” Francis said.
The Mayor said officials are considering travelling to England to study how their market is designed.
