Get­ting Down to Busi­ness” is the new ini­tia­tive of the Saint Lu­cia Cham­ber of Com­merce, In­dus­try and Agri­cul­ture for its mem­bers.

The pro­gramme seeks to bring Cham­ber mem­bers to­gether to find novel ap­proaches to re­solv­ing cer­tain is­sues af­fect­ing them. By part­ner­ing with key gov­ern­ment agen­cies the Cham­ber hopes to en­hance mem­ber knowl­edge and un­der­stand­ing of the par­tic­u­lar is­sue, al­low mem­bers to share ex­pe­ri­ences and dis­cuss how the is­sue af­fects their busi­ness, iden­tify rea­son­able so­lu­tions and ap­proaches to solv­ing the is­sue, and ar­rive at an agreed Cham­ber po­si­tion and ap­proach to ad­dress­ing the is­sue.

The ini­tia­tive will be launched with three is­sues of cur­rent in­ter­est in­clud­ing The Duty Free Liquor Regime, Price Con­trol and The Im­port Li­cense Regime. The events have been sched­uled for July 26th, Au­gust 2nd and 9th 2017 re­spec­tively at the Cham­ber’s con­fer­ence room. Al­ready the rel­e­vant gov­ern­ment agen­cies have agreed to par­tic­i­pate and make pre­sen­ta­tions at the meet­ings.

The Cham­ber strongly be­lieves that these is­suere­lated fora will help the Cham­ber pos­i­tively im­pact mem­bers as they seek to get to the heart of the busi­ness op­er­at­ing en­vi­ron­ment. Deal­ing with these is­sues will help both gov­ern­ment and the busi­ness com­mu­nity op­er­ate more ef­fi­ciently and prof­itably.
