On Friday, Alexander, delivered a sample of his winning presentation.
“Saint Lucia Simply Beautiful is truly the gem of the Caribbean and while we have traditionally followed the brick and mortar model of accommodation today I present you with Rejuvenation Treetopia, a new and innovative concept in harmony with the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, specifically goals number 8, 10 and 13.”
Currently named as the junior tourism minister of the CTO, Francis Alexander participated in the National Tourism Public Speaking Competition sponsored by LUCELEC, preceding the regional event.
The Minister of Tourism Hon. Dominic Fedee was very cordial while praising for all the participating students.
“I am most proud of all of your efforts and all of your accomplishments. Your victories are a tremendous symbol of the wealth and the talent that we have in Saint Lucia at the Secondary School level and how interested you are as young people in our fastest growing industry.”
