Good day and many thanks for downloading this week’s Caribbean Business Report -PDF attached or can be downloadedCBR_issue_537
St. Lucia’s creative talent is on show for the next few weeks – in Trinidad and Tobago as CARIFESTA XIV is into full swing. Let us wish the cast of a Little Folk Tale, the poets, the writers, the visual artists, musicians all the very best in representing 758 in TNT.
We’re now deeply in the back to school mode with St. Lucians returning to or attending new schools, universities or just new experiences. Congratulations and give your best.
Those who are back home from University or completed studies, GOOD LUCK and best wishes.
We must commend too all those corporate entities making scholarships available to hundreds of students throughout the island – from the credit unions to unions, societies, sports organisations.
And we must thank friendly governments like Taiwan, Cuba, Mexico, the UK, the US and many more who provide scholarships to many St. Lucian students. Taiwan is giving 22 scholarships this year. Many thanks. Now St. Lucia has to work on investing more in higher education for its youth. We need to do better than two island schols – which has been a fixture for too long.
In the meantime, here are our headlines.
Do have a productive week.
