Caribbean Business Report for 29th March 2021

Good day and many thanks for your interest in the Caribbean Business Report [PDF attached] or can be read at A few of you did not receive last week’s PDF – here it is the report for March 22nd 2021. Our sincere apologies for that omission.


This week we must encourage you to take advantage of the special offers given by Bank of Saint Lucia to assist with business continuity and most importantly to own land. These opportunities do not come around very often, so ask your ‘future’ if buying land is good for you and the answer will be resounding yes! There are no side effects!!  It is empowering, it is liberating and it is true independence is. It is owning a piece of paradise! Own your peace of mind, own your future!

And the only other message I want to leave on this cold and windy morning is to support our efforts here at the Caribbean Business Report. Ask about our rates, they are more affordable than you think. And yes, feel free to share the report.
