The government of Saint Lucia has to lead by example in supporting local goods and services.
So says Minister for Commerce, Industry, Investment, Enterprise Development and Consumer Affairs, Bradley Felix.
“Government has to be one of the people leading by example,” he told reporters.
“So we cannot be producing something in Saint Lucia and government decides to buy it out of Saint Lucia as long as the quality meets the requirements,” the Minister declared.
“We have to protect our people,” he stated.
Felix made the comments while announcing plans to launch the ‘I Love Saint Lucia’ campaign next week.
“It really is a thrust for all of Saint Lucia to support local – not just food, but what we manufacture on Island, our musicians, our craft – everything,” he explained.
