Good day and many thanks for your interest in the Caribbean Business Report as in St. Lucia we head for another week of a partial shutdown. This time hardware stores are open. COVID-19 could be still in circulation so maintain your social distancing and wash your hands with soap and water as often as possible. View report hereCBR_issue_570
First we must commend the COVID-19 Telethon initiative and its success in raising EC$2.5M -many thanks to the many corporate entities that made it all possible. It’s all for a worthy cause – for the purchase of much needed Personal Protection Equipment and for feeding the vulnerable and underprivileged in our society.
We must also commend the announcement of another BUY LOCAL campaign -let’s ensure this time it is more than just a pronouncement for the occasion, but a commitment to policy, practice and proactivity. It should be the new normal not a reaction to the economic impact of the coronavirus.
Also we must applaud Republic Bank for its pledge of US2M to the OECS for the fight against the coronavirus. Here are the details in this Video News Releaseproduced by All Biz Ltd. View the report here
