The Saint Lucia Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture is concerned about breaches of confidentiality in the public service and private sector.
The private sector body’s Executive Director, Brian Louisy, has warned that the practice could result in harm to this country’s economic interests.
Writing in the latest issue of ‘ED’s Perspective’, Louisy described confidentiality breaches as ‘a disturbing issue’ within the public and private sector.
” Employees are now flippantly “leaking” documents of a private nature regularly without concern for the ramifications,” Louisy asserted in the publication which was obtained by St Lucia Times.
“The impact on business people’s confidence, both Foreign and Local, as to respect of privacy when doing business in Saint Lucia is now real, “ he warned.
“Will my competitor soon know my every business detail once I do business with the
Government of Saint Lucia? Will my personal and business banking information make its way to social media?” Louisy asked.
The Chamber Executive Director said that the nation’s leaders, on all sides, need to
speak out and bring this practice to a stop.
“Or we will all pay the price,” Louisy wrote.
