A government team headed by Prime Minister Allen Chastanet will tour Soufriere today. It will be the first in a number of strategic constituency tours that the new St Lucian leader hopes to undertake in the short to medium term.
The Prime Minister will be accompanied by parliamentary representative and Minister in the Ministry for Economic Development, Housing, and Urban Renewal, Transport and Civil Aviation Herod Stanislas and other Cabinet colleagues.
Among the highlights of the tour, the Prime Minister will visit the Soufriere Hospital, the Soufriere Comprehensive Secondary School, the Hummingbird Beach Resort, the now defunct copra factory.
This first hand assessment of key concerns impacting Soufriere signals the government’s commitment to systematically address several issues which have beleaguered the signaturetown for an extended period of time, a statement from the Prime Minister’s office yesterday said.
It said today’s tour was in keeping with the Prime Minister’s pledge to develop the southern quadrant of the island, consistent with the Constituency without Borders concept.
