PRESS RELEASE – The St. Lucia Industrial and Small Business Association (SLISBA) last weekend hosted its National Awards for Entrepreneurial and Private Sector Excellence for Small, Medium and Micro Enterprises (SMMEs).
The event was held Saturday (17th November, 2018) at Morne Coubaril Estate, Soufriere from 7:30pm, followed by a Gala after Party.
The EXCELLENCE IN ENTREPRENEURSHIP AWARDS PROGRAM is designed to recognize companies and individuals who exemplify the St. Lucian entrepreneurial spirit – individuals who, by their creativity and determination, have established and nurtured successful business ventures.
Increasingly, the priority of the private sector is to make maximum use of St. Lucia’s talent and resources for the good of the country.
The establishment of this award structure will honor the unsung heroes of the private sector, who have transferred a wide array of resources that have created jobs, generated wealth and contributed to the economic and social well-being of St. Lucians at home, while cultivating new markets both locally and abroad.
The Awards ceremony was the premier event representing 80% of the private sector (which is the small, medium and micro enterprises SMMEs).
Those unsung heroes form the backbone of St. Lucia’s private sector and SLISBA, as the voice of that industry, is dedicated to promoting the significant achievements of the sector, while rewarding the excellence and professionalism continually demonstrated by our members and the sector generally.
