The St. Lucia Chamber of Commerce Industry and Agriculture launched the 2017 St. Lucia Business Awards on Thursday this week.

This marks the eighth anniversary of the award ceremony in the current series of the private sector premier awards which celebrates business excellence in St. Lucia.

The Business Awards Committee is very pleased to once again host the awards ceremony as the grand finale event for Nobel Laureate Week.

In his remarks, Business Awards Committee Member, Christian Husbands, said the goal of the Saint Lucia Business Awards continues to be rewarding and celebrating top performing companies within Saint Lucia’s private sector.

The awards have brought much prestige and attention to the many winners and nominees over the years. He emphasized that the Business Awards Committee’s intention is to make completion of entries rigorous but not cumbersome and not dependent on the financial capacity of the applicant. The awards will continue to demonstrate that size is no deterrent to success as it focuses on celebrating excellence throughout the business community.

Scheduled for Saturday, January 28, the 2017 awards ceremony will continue to reward and celebrate companies which have made significant strides within Saint Lucia’s private sector. This year, there will be no additional awards introduced and the fourteen award categories remain as:
