On Tuesday, October 18, the Embassy of Spain in Saint Lucia will celebrate National Day with a reception offered by the Spanish Ambassador, H.E. José María Fernández López de Turiso, which will take place from 6:45 p.m. at the Sandals Grande Resort.
During this event, we will also be entertained by the acclaimed Spanish baritone, Luis Llaneza. Governor
General Dame Pearlette Louisy, Prime Minister Allen Chastanet and Sir Derek Walcott are expected to attend the event.
This year we celebrate the 30th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Spain and St. Lucia. Since 1986, our countries have maintained a cordial relationship, being further strengthened in the past year by the opening of the Permanent Representation of Spain in Castries.
Many bonds link us to the countries of the East Caribbean, as well as many common challenges that we face. Spain intends to continue strengthening its ties with St. Lucia, through the development of new avenues of cooperation in matters such as tourism, renewable energy, or the development of infrastructure, all fields in which Spain´s leadership are recognized globally.
