A Local Chartered Accountant has questioned the authenticity of an article in the Business Insider that lists St Lucia as being among the Top 5 Countries with the Slowest Economies in the World. (See article here)

The observation came from Mr Richard Peterkin who noted that the information in the article seemed suspect and prompted his own investigation to verify whether it was true.

He pointed to the disparity in the sizes of the countries on the list that were compared to St Lucia as the basis for his research.

Mr Peterkin says even more alarming was the figures presented about tourism figures and other factors that were not in keeping with the data released by local authorities.

St Lucia ranked at number 5 among a total of 10 countries making the list of slowest economies in the world.
