The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

In front of an en­thu­si­as­tic crowd of busi­ness lead­ers, politi­cians and Dig­i­cel staff, Prime Min­ster Allen Chas­tanet de­clared Dig­i­cel's new Saint Lu­cia hub of­fices “open for busi­ness” this week.

The in­stal­la­tion of the Saint Lu­cia hub comes as a part of Dig­i­cel's global trans­for­ma­tion pro­gramme launched in Fe­bru­ary of this year in re­sponse to the many changes in the in­dus­try in terms of the com­pet­i­tive en­vi­ron­ment, cus­tomer needs and wants, and tech­no­log­i­cal ad­vances.

Un­der the ban­ner of Dig­i­cel 2030, Dig­i­cel is promis­ing cus­tomers a com­pletely new com­mu­ni­ca­tions and en­ter­tain­ment ex­pe­ri­ence made pos­si­ble by a more ag­ile and cus­tomer-cen­tric de­ploy­ment of re­sources and un­der­pinned by an amazing net­work ex­pe­ri­ence and a com­mit­ment to putting cus­tomers in con­trol.

Speak­ing at the open­ing cer­e­mony, Dig­i­cel CEO for the Caribbean and Cen­tral Amer­ica, Vanessa Slowey, re­marked, “The com­mit­ment Dig­i­cel makes to any and ev­ery coun­try in which we do busi­ness is to com­mu­nity and to ad­vance­ment for all. We make that same promise here to­day to give back to Saint Lu­cia and to drive op­por­tu­ni­ties for Saint Lu­cians. We are proud to call this the home of our hub and grate­ful to have been wel­comed by you. My sin­cere thanks to the Prime Min­is­ter and mem­bers of his ad­min­is­tra­tion for the sup­port, guid­ance and friend­ship – we value it, we ap­pre­ci­ate it and we will re­turn it.”

She con­tin­ued, “And to our cus­tomers here to­day – I would like to say 'thank you' also, and as­sure you that we will work to al­ways earn your busi­ness and your trust and to en­sure that we keep our promises to you. Our trans­for­ma­tion is a work in progress but our am­bi­tions and our in­tent are clear. We look for­ward to de­light­ing you in the fu­ture with what we do - and how we do it.”

In of­fi­cially declar­ing the build­ing open, Prime Min­is­ter Chas­tanet said, "To­day marks the be­gin­ning of plans to make Saint Lu­cia a hub for re­gional and in­ter­na­tional busi­ness. We want to thank Dig­i­cel for its com­mit­ment to Saint Lu­cia and the re­gion, and we an­tic­i­pate far-reach­ing ben­e­fits for the peo­ple of Saint Lu­cia with the open­ing of this hub. Since Dig­i­cel be­gan op­er­a­tions in the re­gion, we have watched it grow and in­crease its ser­vices to the peo­ple and pro­vide so many Saint Lu­cians with an op­por­tu­nity to work in a dynamic en­vi­ron­ment. It has been com­mit­ted to cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity and train­ing and de­vel­op­ment of its team. We are pleased that it con­tin­ues to have con­fi­dence in Saint Lu­cia and we are pleased to part­ner with Dig­i­cel in or­der to cre­ate even more op­por­tu­ni­ties for the peo­ple of the re­gion."

Prime Min­is­ter Allen Chas­tanet lends a hand in rib­bon-cut­ting for­mal­i­ties.
