The Saudi minister came to the island to advance the conversation concerning a possible developmental partnership between St. Lucia and the Arab state.
PM Pierre says he very pleased with the talks and that the Saudis see St. Lucia as a premiere investment opportunity.
“The Saudis are very keen on Saint Lucia. They see Saint Lucia as a very attractive destination” Pierre said. “We also informed them of our need to complete the work at St. Jude Hospital. They were very interested and they thought that our decision to continue work on the original site was a very wise thing to do” he added.

According to Pierre, the government will be awaiting official word from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia within the next two-four weeks, following which he will inform the nation as to the progress made.
