The St. Lucia Chamber of Commerce Industry and Agriculture wishes to remind its members that Carnival Monday and Tuesday are not Public or Commercial Holidays. Yet, we suggest to members and the wider business community that in the spirit of Carnival and as has been the tradition, employers should give their employees time off on Monday 16th July and Tuesday 17th July 2018 so that they can participate in Carnival celebrations on those days. This should be done at your own discretion as a show of goodwill.
Carnival is a national cultural activity and the Private Sector as the main sponsor of this event, should feel proud of their contribution and continued support, thus allow their staff time to enjoy and participate where possible.
The St. Lucia Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture is located at Orange Park Commercial Building, 1st Floor, Bois D’Orange, Gros Islet.
Advocating on behalf of members with the public sector. Increased visibility and credibility. Business training and education information sharing and networking.
A chamber of commerce is an organization of business owners and entrepreneurs who promote the interests of their local business community. Chambers of commerce provide access to valuable resources, discounts, and relationships that help businesses save money and market their products.
Chambers of Commerce will act to promote public policies that are in the best interest of business, in general. Specific Chambers of Commerce may also attempt to promote policies that serve specific industries or geographic locations.
