Invest Saint Lucia CEO’s promise: “The South Shall Rise Again!”

The Chief Executive Officer of Invest Saint Lucia Mr. Roderick Cherry is promising a return to economic prosperity in the south of the island.

He was at the time delivering the feature address at the Southern Business Association’s (SBA) inaugural annual general meeting on November 6, 2019. It was held under the theme “Creating the Environment for Successful Business Growth in the South”.

According to Mr Cherry, Invest Saint Lucia has several plans for the south and it is for members of the SBA to take full advantage of these opportunities. In addition to land developments in Bois Jolie and Beauchamp spurring SME and MME enterprise in the communities, Mr Cherry brought to the SBA’s attention that OJO Labs is one of the best working environments in Saint Lucia today. 

Mr Cherry proudly explained to the SBA that the Royal Saint Lucia Turf Club’s horseracing track, and the earmarked opportunity for Black Bay are not the shining stars in ISL’s plans for the south. 

“Perhaps the most ambitious project Invest Saint Lucia will be undertaking is Anse de Sable, a multi-faceted, hybrid real estate development on approximately 117 acres inclusive of the Queen’s chain of beautiful beachfront in the scenic southern coastline of Vieux Fort,” he said.

Mr Cherry left the SBA with this to ponder on: “We want fellow Saint Lucians to remember that everything we offer to foreign investors is available to them! What is more, we have a mandate to ensure every Saint Lucia owns land and a home. The well-being of our people is at the very heart of our holistic development of our island. Are you ready for the south to rise again?”
