Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre has been highlighting Saint Lucia’s achievements in the 14 months since his Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) won a landslide election.
He did so while calling attention to claims by the opposition United Workers Party (UWP) that "the sky is falling."
But Pierre told Saturday’s annual general meeting of his Castries East Constituency Group that every child recently had their facility fees paid, and Saint Lucia has begun exporting bananas to England, the only country in the region to do so.
Furthermore, he stated that children had begun to receive laptop computers, while the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) stated that Saint Lucia had achieved 8% economic growth.
He also said Saint Lucia has the best tourism figures in the region.
