PM Pierre to attend Brussels  meeting on international migration

St. Lucia Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre.


CASTRIES, St. Lucia--Prime Minister (PM) of St. Lucia Philip J. Pierre will be in Brussels, Belgium from April 7 to April 12, 2024.

The purpose of this trip is to engage in discussions with the European Commission and European Parliament regarding international migration matters.

Specifically, the talks will focus on proposed changes to the Schengen Visa-Free Regime and how they may impact countries that have investor citizenship programmes, like St. Lucia.

St. Lucia is well known for its robust due diligence processes, which serve as the foundation of its successful citizenship-by-investment (CBI) programme.

Prime Minister Pierre’s visit to Brussels although planned in advance to the signing of the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) between other Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) countries with similar programmes assumes added significance, as the prime minister will articulate St. Lucia’s position on the MOA, while also exploring further measures that can be taken by all countries to strengthen CBI programmes.

During the PM’s absence, Deputy Prime Minister Dr. Ernest Hilaire will act as prime minister and minister for finance, economic development, youth economy, and minister for justice and national security. ~ St. Lucia Times ~
