French Ambassador (in residence in Saint Lucia): Mr Eric de la Moussaye, (since 24 September 2013).
Political and economic relations are not very developed.
Cultural, scientific and technical cooperation
Saint Vincent and the Grenadines has no longer been part of the Priority Solidarity Zone (ZSP) since 2002. The country is monitored by the Adviser on regional cooperation in residence in Saint Lucia. There is an Alliance Française teaching centre in Kingstown which is attended by 250 students. French assistance is now mostly channelled via the European Union, in particular the European Development Fund (EDF).
