His message stated, that youngsters should stay away from the pursuit of crime and focus on unlocking their hidden potential.

PM Philip J Pierre stated, “To our young men in particular, those who are attracted to gangs and the pursuit of crime, there are no Nobel prizes, there is only confinement within prison bars and premature deaths, you can gain prosperity and genuine glory by unlocking your hidden talents through legitimate, honourable pursuits.”

This speech of PM Philip J Pierre at the Symposium event addressed the people of Saint Lucia to do the work that takes their lives to a road full of glory and respect. The young men of the country should be a strong foundation pillar for their development.

This approach includes raising awareness among the youth of the country by staying away from criminal activities and working towards the betterment of society and the environment by educating themselves and promoting a better living condition for themselves and their families.

This emphasizes the message that getting influenced by negativity and getting attracted to gangs and crime is the worst they can do to themselves and their families, there is no Nobel Prize in the world of crime, there is only confinement within prison bars and ignoble and premature deaths.
