Tuesday, February 15, 2005 - Prime Minister Dr Kenny D. Anthony is
unable to attend this week’s CARICOM Summit in Suriname due to pressing
engagements at home. But, he said the Government and people of St. Lucia were
being adequately represented.
The Prime Minister has been unable to join his regional colleagues at the
February 14-18 Summit, since it coincided with several local engagements
relating to the inscription of the Pitons as a World Heritage Site and
observance of the 26th anniversary of St. Lucia’s Independence.
The Prime Minister indicated that the St. Lucia delegation to the Summit was
being led by External Affairs Minister Senator Petrus Compton and also included
St. Lucia’s Ambassador to CARICOM, Mr. Anthony Severin.
