Commerce Minister Emma Hippolyte says she has noted changes in consumer behaviour in Saint Lucia, as an increasing number show ‘great patriotism’ by supporting local producers and service providers.

“You are gradually embracing the idea of being sustainable consumers by eating what we grow,” Hippolyte, whose responsibilities also include Manufacturing, Business Development, Cooperatives, and Consumer Affairs, observed in a Christmas Message.

“I am very proud today because you have demonstrated great resilience and capacity to navigate these turbulent times and I salute you, ” the Soufriere MP stated.

She also made observations about the business community.

“I have witnessed employers committing to retaining their staff despite marked reductions in revenue, each with that deeper understanding of putting people first,” Hippolyte said.

She reminded the business community and ‘aspiring business minds at home and abroad’ that the team at the Ministry of Commerce remains fully committed to supporting them while ensuring a sustained enabling environment.

Hippolyte explained in this way, the private sector will thrive, maintaining its place as the engine of growth for the Saint Lucia economy and a vital stakeholder in building a country that the future generation truly deserves.

It is like the people are finding ways to help themselves while you just sit in office and just give thanks and praises to us when the media approach you all.The remittances from the diaspora are helping the people to purchase the high priced foods for us to survive so your government should really thank them.
