The intent of this RFQ is to identify and select an experienced and creative publishing company that will be responsible for coordinating the artwork, design and layout of this print publication.

Background

Invest Saint Lucia (ISL) was established by Act of Parliament Number 14 of 2014, to preserve and continue the corporate identity of the former National Development Corporation in an effort to advance Saint Lucia’s socio-economic development by promoting, stimulating and facilitating direct investment while making a reasonable return on assets.
