June 5, 1998 - A memorandum of understanding is to be signed Friday, between the Government of St. Lucia and Britain, for a two-year Customs Reform and Modernization project.

This forms part of the Britain’s contribution to the Caribbean Drugs Initiative, which aim is to help alleviate the adverse social and economic impact of drugs trafficking within and throughout the region.

The initiative was designed through a participatory process involving local customs officials and other key stakeholders.

The project will be under the direction of a field manager based in St. Lucia, who will also oversee Grenada and possibly similar projects in other OECS counties.

Acting Prime Minister the Hon. Mario Michel, will sign the memorandum for St. Lucia, while Gordon Baker, British High Commissioner to Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean, will sign on behalf of the British Government.
