Monday 5 December 2011 Rebuilding the country’s infrastructure which was battered during Hurricane Tomas is a top priority for the new government.


Deputy Prime Minister, and Minister for Infrastructure, Port Services, and Transport, Honourable Phillip J Pierre, says he is confident the administration will successfully achieve its mandate.


He says with the support of all and sundry, the Cabinet of Ministers will make Saint Lucians proud.


“The Prime Minister and I are the only two individuals who have served in Cabinet before, but we have quite a talented group of men and women.

“As Deputy Prime Minister, I will assist and guide them, but I am sure with the talent in Cabinet, with the will and support and cooperation of the Civil Services, and the people of Saint Lucia, I believe the government will fulfil its mandate.”


Recognising that the road ahead will not be easy, Minister Pierre says the new administration is prepared to put head and shoulders to the wheel to ensure success.


The Deputy Prime Minister says he is thankful for the opportunity given to serve the people of Saint Lucia, a responsibility he will discharge with transparency and honesty.


My assignment is not going to be an easy one. We have serious issues with the infrastructure of Saint Lucia, particularly after Hurricane Tomas, but I am sure with the support and assistance of my Cabinet colleagues and the staff of the ministry I direct, we will make Saint Lucians proud and do the work that the people elected us to do on November 28, 2011.”


Minister Pierre was speaking after taking the oath of office at an official swearing in ceremony at Government House last Friday, December 2, 2011.


On the issue of leadership succession, Minister Pierre told reporters he is ready to take up the post whenever called upon.


Noting that one must follow before becoming a leader, he pledged to do his best on behalf of Saint Lucia in any capacity.
