National Vision Plan

The government of Saint Lucia has commissioned the creation of a developmental road map for the future development of the island. The Saint Lucia National Vision Plan is a framework through which the entire island can share in a common vision, positioning Saint Lucia at the economic and social heart of the Windward Islands.

The Saint Lucia National Vision Plan provides a broad overview of Saint Lucia and the development issues it faces. It contains both first-hand information and observations gathered during many trips, interviews, and workshops. The first-hand information and observations involved participants representing all segments of Saint Lucia’s population. The document also includes a compilation of existing reports and plans undertaken by government agencies and developers.

The creation of the Vision Plan will serve as a framework for development, providing the tool by which all governmental and non-governmental agencies can identify and develop individual projects within a national Vision Plan.

The Vision Plan presents a two pronged, but related, approach to the economic growth of Saint Lucia. The Vision Plan first builds on the government’s ‘Live local – work local’ initiative and ensures that future investment is spread throughout the island – providing benefits to local communities – not only in the creation of local jobs, but also through the circulation of wealth at the local level.

Secondly, by encouraging tourism development at a regional level, the pressures experienced by the existing development of the North-West Quadrant would be relieved, the pattern of workforce migration that has been experienced over the past few years would be reduced, and additional business opportunities within the regions would be created.

The final Vision Plan will be fully integrated and sustainable, supported and endorsed by the government. The Plan will ensure that development can move forward, in a controlled manner, for the overall betterment of the island nation of Saint Lucia.
