The Southern Business Association is a legally registered entity with a growing membership of nearly 40 southern businesses. Its mission is to promote the development and economic prosperity of the South of St. Lucia, by providing advocacy, institutional support for small and medium businesses in areas of productivity, efficiency, quality, governance, technology, management and finance.
Over the past two years the SBA worked closely with stakeholder agencies such as the St. Lucia Coalition of Service Industries, the SBDC in the department of Commerce, The St. Lucia Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Invest St. Lucia, as it strives to build an organization which will become the voice of business in the south.
