Thursday, February 10, 2011 – In an era where financial prudence is of utmost importance, the Office of Private Sector Relations (OPSR) is urging Saint Lucians to multiply their dollars.


The OPSR is a Unit of the Ministry of Industry, Commerce & Consumer Affairs with a mandate to increase local investment and Small and Micro Enterprise development.


The “Money Management” campaign has been launched by the OPSR with support from the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank and the Ministry of Education.


Its focus is to raise awareness on the importance of savings and investment at personal and national levels, using a variety of public education tools.



“When we say saving and investment- we ought not to forget the investment part. They are equally important; make your money work for you, and make money for you.”



The Money Management Campaign, Emmanuel says, is intended to make Saint Lucians knowledgeable about sound financial management practices, which should result in better decision making and disposal of funds.


Ms. Emmanuel emphasized that the campaign is a national effort, requiring the input of everyone.


To this end, she says, a network called the Approved Savings and Investment Support Team (ASIST), will be the platform for businesses and individuals to lend their support to the project in ensuring its success.
