THE Saint Lucia Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture will listen with intense interest to information on the performance of the economy in 2018 and the prospects for 2019/2020 when the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Finance Ms. Cointha Thomas and her team address members at a luncheon on March 15th 2019.

Dubbed “Chew on It” members will not only listen but ask questions and assess implications for their businesses going forward. The luncheon presentation will be followed by the lead discussant sharing some thoughts on the critical messages that should be gleaned from the presentation. The Chamber intends to utilize this forum to help identify the imperatives for the business community and which should perforce be part of their critical advocacy issues to be pursued in the coming years.

The Chamber invites its members and the business community to “Chew on It: St. Lucia’s Economic Performance and Prospects for 2019/2020” at the Finance Administrative Centre, 5th Floor, Point Seraphine, commencing at 12:00 p.m. on March 15th, 2019.

The drive for this dialogue arises out of the recognition that the modern business marketplace is a data- driven environment and current and correct economic data plays an important role in empowering business leaders to make decisions based on facts, trends and statistical information. However, with so much information being banded around, business leaders must be able to sift through the noise and get the right information, understand and interpret that information correctly. This Forum will assist in this regard.

For more details, contact the St. Lucia Chamber of Commerce. Interested persons are asked to express interest to the Secretariat as soon as possible!
