Prime Minister Allen Chastanet has been highlighting what he described as his administration’s ‘deliberate and strategic’ investments in sports.

“As a Government, we have made deliberate and strategic investments in sports which we hope will help improve the level and frequency of competitions, help develop world class athletes and serve as a vehicle for encouraging a culture of teamwork, co-operation and discouraging anti-social behavior,” Chastanet wrote Monday on his official Facebook page.

He noted that so far, the government has rehabilitated or upgraded playing facilities in Balata, Fond Assond, Jacmel, Canaries, La Guerre, La Fargue, Choiseul, La Clery and Wenn Playing Field in Micoud.
