Gov’t keen on sea port facility in V-Fort

The Government of Saint Lucia and MSC Cruises are in discussions on the development of a port facility in the south of the island.

Prime Minister Hon. Allen Chastanet revealed that successful talks have been held with the third largest cruise ship company in the world.

”The emphasis by my government is to improve the quality of service for cruise passengers in Castries but not to expand the quantum of it. All of the increases in the size of the ships would be facilitated in Vieux Fort. I think having two ports certainly augers well and gives us that additional room.

”The prime minister added that developing the south of the island provides the opportunity to develop home porting—the port from which a vessel primarily operates or is permanently based.
