The announcement last week by the government of Antigua and Barbuda that it had taken decisive action to restructure and merge its various offices in New York to allow them to function as a single unit and save the country thousands of dollars in future operating costs has received a resounding ovation from the Lucian People’s Movement (LPM).

The LPM says has continuously championed the cause of restructuring St Lucia’s embassies and consulates abroad and has, in the past, bitterly criticised the government for presiding over the country’s largest non-productive and low-yielding bureaucratic investments outside of the country.  

The LPM is hopeful that the Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) government will finally see the wisdom of the LPM’s long-standing arguments in favour of diplomatic reforms and act swiftly to minimise the cost of operations abroad.

Fully cognizant of the fact that a growing number of our people are becoming increasingly concerned about the government’s inability to meet its financial obligations at home, the LPM has reiterated calls on the government to consider a serious and comprehensive review of recommendations made by the LPM geared towards diplomatic reforms

Mr Prudent is of the view that the country’s foreign policy is largely responsible for the deficit currently facing the country
