SLTB Looks To­wards Fu­ture Ad­vance­ments While Manag­ing Tran­si­tionary Pe­riod

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Fol­low­ing the res­ig­na­tions of the Di­rec­tor and Deputy Di­rec­tor of the Saint Lu­cia Tourist Board, Min­is­ter of Tourism, Do­minic Fedee, has an­nounced that the cur­rent Chair­per­son of the Board, Agnes Fran­cis, will as­sume the role of Ex­ec­u­tive Chair­per­son while the or­ga­ni­za­tion tran­si­tions to the Saint Lu­cia Tourism Author­ity and re­cruits new lead­er­ship.

Thus far, the Ex­ec­u­tive Chair is be­ing ably as­sisted by the re­main­ing staff who have given their fullest sup­port and are able to main­tain nor­mal op­er­a­tions.

With the in­ter­est of Saint Lu­cia’s tourism in­dus­try as a top pri­or­ity, this ap­point­ment is in­tended to al­low for a smooth tran­si­tion and con­ti­nu­ity in the op­er­a­tions of the SLTB in­clud­ing the com­mit­ted mar­ket­ing pro­grams, re­la­tion­ships with stake­hold­ers and the ex­e­cu­tion of on­go­ing events such as the At­lantic Rally for Cruis­ers (ARC).

The Gov­ern­ment of Saint Lu­cia rec­og­nizes that for progress to oc­cur, dif­fi­cult choice must be made. How­ever, the un­der­ly­ing in­tent is to go about the tran­si­tion in a hu­mane and trans­par­ent way, with the great­est re­spect for and fair­ness to staff.

Above all, the Gov­ern­ment of Saint Lu­cia stands stead­fast in en­sur­ing that the busi­ness of the in­dus­try will go on dur­ing this tran­si­tion and that this process will strengthen and grow our des­ti­na­tion and by ex­ten­sion our coun­try whose fu­ture is in­ex­tri­ca­bly tied to the tourism in­dus­try.
