Good day and many thanks for your interest in the Caribbean Business Report [PDF attached] or can be read at www.stluciafirst.comCBR_issue_611
Parliament meets tomorrow to formalise the extension of the state of emergency, as the island struggles to cope with community spread of Covid-19. It is a result of people relaxing the guard a bit and not adhering strictly to the prescribed protocols. And this is not helped by open borders as Dubai and other ‘escapes’ are finding out.
Well, SuperBowl 55 happened and West Indies struggled but in the end secured a brilliant victory against Bangladesh – so sport is beginning to reclaim the front pages. Levern Spencer is getting back to winning ways, in the Czech Republic, and so too Julian Alfred in track and field; and in cricket – Kimani Melius and Larry Edward for the Windwards Volcanoes have started with a victory against the Leeward Hurricanes. And of course Johnson Charles is in Dubai along with other Caribbean cricketers. Here all contact sport has been shut down for the moment.
In the meantime, the countdown is on to our Independence Celebrations, the 42nd Anniversary of Independence – most of the events will be virtual, so look out for that the week-end of February 20th -22nd.
In the meantime here are the main stories for this week
