Amid concerns that Sandals’ Resorts International is simply becoming ‘too big to control,’ Economic Development Minister Guy Joseph is defending his tributes to the resort chain.
Joseph was effusive in his praise of the luxury property chain at the ground-breaking for the Sandals La Source on 2 May.
He says he stands by his statements that Sandals Resorts International has been good for Saint Lucia.
Joseph says he was sincere in his statement at a 2 May ground-breaking that the government would welcome a fifth Sandals Resort in Saint Lucia.
Joseph says when it comes to Sandals and its expansion, there is nothing to fear.
He says on the contrary, this level of development in the luxury resort market should be embraced for its impact on job creation and economic development.
