St Lucia hopes for some significant improvements in its infrastructure after 100 high profile investors attended an investment forum just before Christmas.
The DSH Group in collaboration with the Government of Saint Lucia hosted the Forum and Welcome Party at the Royal Saint Lucia Turf Club in Vieux Fort.
According to Prime Minister Allen Chastanet, the event saw the investors from across the Caribbean, the United States, the United Kingdom and Asia participate in and being exposed to the “visionary plans and projects which are happening across our beautiful island.
“These include the Pearl of the Caribbean, the new Hewanorra International Airport, the Cruise ship home port in Vieux Fort and the redevelopment of Anse de Sables among several others,” Chastanet said.
He disclosed that one of the major announcements made at the event was that École hôtelière de Lausanne, which is a hospitality management school based in Switzerland, regarded as the best of its kind in the world, will be opening a satellite school in St Lucia in 2020.
This school helps prepare students for senior international positions in the field of tourism and hospitality.
