PM Lauds Efforts To Bring Tourism Benefits To Anse La Raye-Canaries

Prime Minister Allen Chastanet has praised Tourism Minister Dominic Fedee’s efforts to  bring tourism benefits to the people of Anse La Raye-Canaries.

Fedee is the MP for the constituency.

” I am extremely proud of Hon. Dominic Fedee for his dedication and effort in ensuring that his constituents are in a position to benefit more widely from Tourism,” Prime Minister Chastanet wrote on his official Facebook page.

He observed that the constituency of Anse la Raye-Canaries is home to the latest addition to  diversifying Saint Lucia’s tourism product.

“Glittering Sands at Trou Lounjé in Anse la Raye is locally owned and is the latest beach park facility to be developed on the West Coast,” Chastanet noted.

Chastanet, a former Tourism Minister himself, recalled that this week over 50 cruise ship passengers graced the beach facility which employs over 20 persons from the constituency.

He disclosed that in the coming weeks and months, several other projects will be completed which will bring further Tourism opportunities to “this historically fishing village.”

The PM said he is grateful to the investors for their vision and commitment, as well as for the much needed opportunities being brought to the people of the constituency.

He explained that traditionally, the constituency of Anse la Raye-Canaries has not really benefited holistically from the tourism industry.

“Please note that access to the beach by locals remains open,” he observed in his Facebook post.

  1. THE NEW TOURISM. REJECTED DECK CHAIRS AND UMBRELLAS FROMCRUISE SHIPS PLACE THEM ON THE PEOPLE’S BEACH, AND VOILA, Y.OU HAVE A NEW TROUISM DEVELOPEMENT PROJECT BRAVO…..

  2. Nice…keep going Mr Prime Minister, to do what is right by the People of Saint Lucia. Now I have heard rumours of Saint Lucians being denied access to certain beaches on the Island. If that is the case, this is totally unacceptable. I have personally heard from the current Minister for tourism himself to look into these alligations. What has been the outcome? No beach should be off limits to Saint Lucians and visitors alike.

  3. Because our MP is not UWP, we are neglected in Marigot, yes the place that is always used in the brochures, people here have been campaigning for beach refurbishment and most of all washrooms on Marigot Beach for years, and we are just ignored. Shame on you, more projects in Anse La Raye? how about thinking of Marigot for a change Mr Fedee, or does that not pay because you wont get votes here, I am so disappointed in you.
