St. Lucia Is No.1
While Kenny and Tony used the Dennery platform on Sunday to put on his pathetic address the World Bank had already prepared a report considering St. Lucia as the top country in Caricom to do business.
While the pathetic and desperate opposition leader took time out to quote all his bogus figures on the economy and national debt, he conveniently did not report to his people on St.Lucia's achievement which this blog is positive he must have read prior to his rally.
The labour party continues to decieve the people of St.Lucia in all form of communication. They blatanly refuse to admit that St.Lucia has done better under King's five years than Kenny's nine. Below is the article that attests to the World bank report.
By the Caribbean Journal staff
Doing business is easier in St Lucia than anywhere else in CARICOM, according to the 2012 Doing Business report from the World Bank and the International Finance Corporation.
St Lucia was ranked 52nd in the world for the ease of doing business, tops in the Caribbean, followed by Antigua and Barbuda at 57th and Dominica at 65th.
Haiti was the lowest-ranked CARICOM country for the ease of doing business, ahead of Suriname.
Among the top Caribbean countries were Trinidad, which was ranked 68th, and Grenada, which came in at 73rd.
Jamaica was listed as the top place in the Caribbean to start a business, according to the report, followed by Dominica.
Trinidad topped the list among Caribbean countries for protecting investors.
Here is the full list within the Caribbean:
1. St Lucia
2. Antigua and Barbuda
4. Trinidad and Tobago
6. St Vincent and the Grenadines
10. St Kitts and Nevis
