Martinique and Saint Lucia Sign Agreement on Cooperation
Martinique and Saint Lucia have signed an agreement on bilateral cooperation.
The pact was signed this week on the occasion of St Lucia Prime Minister Dr Kenny Anthony’s official visit to the French department.
The agreement covered six major themes, including arts, with particular attention to co-production of films; trade, with a planned technical support programme; tourism development; green energy, health cooperation and climate change, according to a statement from the office of Martinique Regional Council President Serge Letchimy.
Letchimy has been working to deepen Martinique’s cooperation with its regional neighbours of late, highlighted by a visit to the CARICOM Heads of Government summit in St Vincent earlier this year.
That was the first time a Martinique regional council president had ever visited the summit.
Anthony was to conclude his visit to Martinique on Tuesday.
