The issue of LIAT and the linkages between trade and air transportation within the region feature heavily during discussions between CARICOM heads who are currently meeting in St Lucia for a special meeting.
The issue of severance for former LIAT workers has been a vexing one over the past two years, however, the preoccupation of shareholder governments; seems to be to get a new LIAT off the ground.
Prime Minister Gaston Browne is in St. Lucia and is expected to return home tonight.
Prime Minister Browne will return late Saturday from the Meeting.
Later this month, Prime Minister Browne is expected to travel to the Bahamas for the 44th Regular Meeting of CARICOM Heads of Government which will examine integration, transportation, and security among other issues.
