Saint Lucia Backs Stronger Ties With Africa

Saint Lucia supports closer collaboration with Africa.

“Given our historic and cultural ties to Africa, I have always been surprised that there hasn’t been greater collaboration between our two regions,” Prime Minister Allen Chastanet wrote on his official Facebook page.

The Saint Lucia PM visited Barbados for a day in his capacity as Chairman of CARICOM to meet with His Excellency President Uhuru Kenyatta, who is the President of Kenya.

“We are now working to strengthen the ties between the Caribbean and Africa which will further assist in creating more opportunities for the people that we serve as well as to increase cooperation on global issues and challenges which our countries face,” Chastanet stated.

President Uhuru Kenyatta began a three-day State Visit to Barbados on Thursday, described as being in line with “his Pan African credentials and commitment”.

Prior to visiting Barbados, the Kenyan leader was in Jamaica where he met and held talks with Governor-General Patrick Allen and Prime Minister Andrew Holness.
