Nancy Charles, the Administrative Attache to Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet, has declared that too many people are frustrated with the system when they attempt to get business done.
Charles spoke following an announcement by Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet, Monday, that she will be taking on an expanded role.
She told St Lucia Times that the new area of focus would be for her to assist persons in the implementation of either private or government assisted projects, being a link or liaison person they can contact.
“They are frustrated with the back and forth, they are frustrated that they do not get what they need at the particular time and so my role is to assist them and to help facilitate that and to make things a little bit better for for all Saint Lucians,” Charles stated.
“What you find happening a lot is that sometimes investors who come into this country or even our business persons as well who need some type of assistance, sometimes they have to call various ministries, various agencies – sometimes they do not get the necessary assistance they need and they end up coming to the Office of the Prime Minister to get reprieve or to get a document finalised or signed,” she explained.
According to Charles, the situation has limited efforts at implementing government projects.
Charles said she will also provide feedback to the Prime Minister and the cabinet of ministers.
