Caribbean Business Report for 9th December 2019

This is the week of National Day and the inaugural Royal St. Lucia Turf Club horse race schedule for Friday December 13th – a holiday in St. Lucia. Organisers say all systems are in place for the richest race in the Caribbean. This is a CTV feature on the final open day. In it the Prime Minister outlines plans for developments around the track.
It is also a time to celebrate our entrepreneurs as we recently concluded the Taiwan St. Lucia Partnership Trade Show. Calabash TV has as is customary provided extensive coverage. These features are currently aired on CTV and most have been uploaded to our YouTube and Facebook pages. Give some love to our entrepreneurs the majority of whom are women. The links are contained in the CBR.


And yet another reason to celebrate. The creator of the ALL IN Sculpture Jallim Eudovic has received high praise as he is awarded the 2020 Anthony N Sabga Award for Excellence. Congratulations Jallim. Just recently Jallim spoke with Calabash TV
