The latest added is an interview with Johnathan Johannes – the Managing Director of 1st National Bank. He speaks about the successes of the bank, the challenges for the region and why the decision of a consortium of banks to purchase the assets of the Royal Bank of Canada should remind us all that as Independent countries we need to pool our resources – human, financial and natural – to advance the region through ingenuity, industriousness and hard work. St. Lucia deserves to celebrate 1st National Bank, its Board management and staff for their amazing achievements of 2019.
The interview with Mr. Johannes can be viewed here.
You can also check out an interview we did earlier with Irvin Springer – who spoke with us as a Concerned Citizen on Crime. The double homicide in the quiet community of Boguis – mandates that we pay attention to crime and engage in discussions on confronting the contributing factors to violence. Irvin’s interview can be seen here.
And also we spoke with Carol Henry the newly elected President of the St. Lucia National Cricket Association – particularly timely in light of the achievements of the West Indies Under-19 Cricket team – topping a group which included England and Australia. They are now poised for an exciting quarter-finals encounter with New Zealand on Wednesday. Australia plays India on Tuesday. The West Indies U-19 is captained by Kimani Melius of St. Lucia, a product of the Grassroots Cricket programme led by Alton Crafton.
In the meantime -here are this week’s main stories.
