The purposes of the workshop include strengthening trade relations between St Lucia and the United States of America, also informing US firms operating in St. Lucia, including US Franchises, how to access and utilize the commercial services offered by the US Government and to inform firms wishing to trade, import from or export to the United Sates, of the numerous and varied special services at their disposal.

In that regard, Executive Director of the St. Lucia Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture, Brian Louisy, says that “with the number of US owned firms operating in St. Lucia and many more seeking to invest, as well as the number of local firms who import from and export to the United States of America this kind of informative workshop will provide significant benefits of contacts and vital information to the astute participant.

The United States Embassy’s Economic and Political Division, has been working closely with the St. Lucia Chamber of Commerce Industry and Agriculture in putting on this workshop and will be bringing in a number of speakers from the specific agencies to share key information with the St. Lucia Business Community.
