Prime Minister Allen Chastanet has expressed his gratitude to former United States President, Bill Clinton, for visiting OJO Labs during his recent trip here.
“I am extremely grateful to President Clinton and his team for taking time out during his trip to Saint Lucia to visit our innovative and talented team at OJO Labs,” Chastanet wrote in a post on his Facebook page.
The PM noted that OJO Labs is currently hiring over 20 new Saint Lucians every month commencing this summer.
He disclosed that it is anticipated that they will employ about 700 Saint Lucians by the year 2020.
“Not only are these young people being taught IT skills, but their knowledge of the Real Estate market and selling internationally is being greatly enhanced at this state of the art facility,” Chastanet explained.
“Thank you to President Clinton for sharing some valuable advice and connections to help strengthen this programme,” the Prime Minister said.
Last week, Clinton visited Saint Lucia where he and Chastanet opened a solar project facilitated by the Clinton Climate Initiative and Rocky Mountain Institute.
