A Government under Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) leader, Philip J. Pierre,  will ‘seriously pursue a policy of wealth creation and Youth Economic Empowerment,’ the party says.

“We will immediately initiate and fund a Youth Economy to provide thousands of sustainable jobs for the young people of Saint Lucia,” according to a post on the SLP’s official Facebook page.

According to the post on Thursday, the Youth Economy will address the special interests of all young people in economic activities that embrace Sports, Entertainment, Creative Industries, Science, Information Technology and other areas of youth interest.

“We will provide training, finance, and marketing support for young people wishing to transform their skills, hobbies, and passion into entrepreneurial activities,” it asserted.
