As the world grapples with multiple challenges, including the COVID-19 pandemic, the impact of the war in Ukraine, and climate change, Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre has disclosed that he is lobbying colleague leaders to make a difference.

“I continue to implore my colleague Heads of Government to make a difference to the status quo so that history will mark us as the group of leaders who walked it like we talked it,” Pierre wrote on Facebook.

The Saint Lucia Prime Minister, attending the Commonwealth Heads of Government Summit in Rwanda, expressed gratitude to President Paul Kagame for his hospitality as the event host.

He also congratulated Baroness Patricia Scotland on her re-election as the Secretary-General of the Commonwealth.

Scotland was facing a challenge from Kamina Johnson Smith, the foreign minister of Jamaica, who conceded defeat in a Tweet.

Jamaica’s largely unexpected announcement of  Johnson Smith’s candidacy had created waves among Caribbean Community (CARICOM) member states, with several leaders suggesting that a single candidate from the region was the preferred option.

According to Prime Minister Pierre, leaders at the Commonwealth Summit had intense discussions during the past few days.

He observed that Small Island Developing States (SIDS) continue to battle with the disastrous effects of hurricanes, food insecurity, and increasing poverty levels.

“Therefore, climate-related financing pledged by the world’s largest greenhouse gas emitters must be prioritised to enhance the capacity of SIDS to respond to these challenges,” Pierre stated.

  1. Unfortunately for our politicians talk is cheap, the political campaign continues to go on even if the party has been put into government. This is what keeps us from going forward, these politicians don’t know the difference between governance and campaigning. Don’t know if it’s our DNA or RNA or whatever but black people are the most divided people in the world, Africa, the Caribbean and north America where the majority of black people live are the most divided nations and where wealth is in aboundant but for afew

  2. Philip likes to call on others but what he himself is doing or planning to do? What has he (St Lucia) is putting in place to join in the fight? He has not said nada. He likes to talk at people.
    He wants the leaders to make a difference. What difference he would like to see. He has not articulated that. He statements are usually vague.

  3. I don’t see what talk our PM talking or walk he walking cause all dem leaders in de Caribbean are blind and death to the cries of dem people. But when de world government aka UN say shut down, close borders, arrest de people, you following orders like a bunch of sycophants and cowards. De people will hold you’ll accountable for talking and walking us through this wicked UN world agenda.
