Castries, Saint Lucia: The Deputy Prime Minister of Saint Lucia, as well as the member of parliament serving for the Castries South, Ernest Hilaire, shared the weekly review of his visits.

Minister Hilaire attended three major activities last week, each of great significance. The major visits of him are as follows,

On Wednesday- Constituency Day

The Deputy Prime Minister paid his visit at the launch of Constituency Day, the Security in Movable Properties Registry, otherwise known as the Collateral Registry. Notably, this is actually of seminal significance.

It is to be noted that this Registry would allow people to use their movable assets as collateral as they can, which means those individuals who could not use their assets like sewing machines, intellectual property rights, and farming produce can now do so.

On Friday- Sod Turning

Minister Ernest attended the Sod Turning for the Gros Islet Beach Park, known as Simple’s Park. The park is Simon Philip’s innovation called Simple.

Notably, this project is part of plans for the redevelopment of the Gros Islet Waterfront, as it signifies the consistency of the government’s approach to restructuring the tourism industry to make it world-class.
