In a move to expand its business and tourism presence in the Middle East, the government of Saint Lucia has established the Office of the Honorary Consul in Saudi Arabia.

The Government has appointed Halla Walid Al Juffali as Honorary Consul based in Jeddah, where she will represent Saint Lucia.

To prepare for her new role, Juffali recently took a tour of the island and met with many of its government officials and agencies and major national institutions.

The Office will begin operations on November 1, 2015, at which point its first activity will be the organization of a major training workshop with travel agents.

Its other activities will include investment and business promotion.
