PM Chastanet says Vieux Fort youths excited by upcoming development

Prime Minister Allen Chastanet posted the following on his official Facebook page on Tuesday, June 11, 2019:

"I met these young men whilst spending some time in Vieux Fort yesterday.

Their excitement grew as I showed them our plans for the south which includes the New Hewanorra International Airport which is currently underway, the Private Jet Facilities at HIA which will be completed before the end of 2019, the continued expansion of Ojo Labs which currently employs over 250 young Saint Lucians and will employ 500 by the end of this year, the new wing at St Jude Hospital, The 1st Phase of the Pearl of the Caribbean which will be ready by year end, the new hotel which will be commencing in Canelles in the coming weeks, Invest Saint Lucia’s master development plan for Pointe Sable and the Cruise-ship home porting Facilities in Vieux Fort.

All these projects are meant to bring meaningful opportunities to the doorsteps of Saint Lucians who are living in the south and have been neglected for far too long!"
