Dame Pearlette Louisy, Governor General of St. Lucia, attended a ministerial roundtable session at the 19CCEM Civil Society Forum. 

In an interview with the Commonwealth Foundation, Dame Pearlette insisted that, “sometimes civil society to do not realise the power they have to influence policy formulation, but also to influence the implementation of that policy”. She added, “So very often we have two monologues, two soliloquies – policy makers on one side and civil society on the other, but that dialogue is so important”.
