The Mayor of Castries, Peterson D. Francis last week hosted a trade mission from the Trinidad and Tobago Manufacturers’ Association (TTMA).
The meeting focused on expanding trade relations between Trinidad and Tobago and St. Lucia. It follows Mayor Francis’ visit to Trinidad and Tobago in May 2019 where he met with leading business people, members of the TTMA and local Mayors, in an effort to improve trade, business and cultural ties between the twin Island Republic and Saint Lucia.
“The more Castries engages with the world, the stronger our economy will be,” said Mayor Francis.
“We have to create a culture where we as citizens need to take the approach of not just wanting, but also building partnerships so the country can benefit. I am delighted that I was able to meet with key stakeholders and it led to this visiting trade mission. I am hopeful that ties will be strengthened with key trade and economic organizations, investment opportunities will be explored and business relations between both countries will be strengthened,” the Castries Mayor stated.
