Under his purview as it relates to Diaspora Affairs he will facilitate and develop partnerships between the Diaspora and Saint Lucians living at home as well as to develop and implement a strategic framework for Diaspora Affairs.

All of this, with the aim of effectively managing the collateral functions of the OECS and CARICOM, while creating opportunities across geographical boundaries and promoting public awareness.

“It is an honour for me to be able to serve in this capacity. During my thirty year stint as a public servant, I spent a lot of time committed to matters affecting the OECS and CARICOM, and so I believe I am well placed to give the best advice and guidance to the government. I will also ensure that the general public will be kept informed of developments within the OECS, CARICOM and the Diaspora” Mr. Richardson commented.

The new ambassador will also serve as Saint Lucia’s focal point on the OECS Commission and the Permanent Committee of Ambassadors for CARICOM respectively.
