“The European Union has partnered with us for some major infrastructure projects and most recently, the Venus – Anse La Raye Link Road,” Prime Minister Pierre stated.

While publicizing the benefits of this project, PM underscored that this project would provide assistance to St Lucian, who drive motorbikes. Furthermore, he added that the link road would contribute to the upliftment of the housing, agriculture, tourism and business communities.

He also optimized that the opening of the Venus Anse La Raye Link Road will help in the building of global standards.

“This project will not only provide relief for motorists but will also expand the opportunities for the community in housing, agriculture, tourism and business.

I am looking forward to the opening of this road which I expect will be built at a global standard and to withstand some of the onslaughts of climate change,” Prime Minister notified.

While taking a step towards the development of St Lucian residents, in early March, the government added more than ten (10) vehicles to the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force to safeguard and protect the Caribbean country.

At that time, PM Pierre mentioned, “I want you to take this handover, this $1.06 million that the Government has spent not a favour, it’s the Government’s commitment to you so that you, in turn, could improve the conditions; can improve the quality of life in this country and the quality of life depends on how safe people are.”
