Nepal and Saint Lucia established formal bilateral diplomatic relations on 27 August 2019. The relations between the two countries have remained cordial since.
A small island country in the Caribbean Sea, with its capital at Castries, Saint Lucia covers a land area of 617 sq. km and has an estimated population of 1,70,000. Tourism is a major contributing sector of the economy which accounts for about 65% of the total GDP. Many tourists visit the island country because of its volcanic origin and its location in the path of the northeastern trade winds and warm tropical maritime climate. Chief exports are bananas, cardboard cartons, clothing, coconut products and electronic goods.
Saint Lucia became member of the United Nations on 18 September 1979 following its independence from Great Britain.
Both Nepal and Saint Lucia are members of the Group of 77 and the Non-Aligned Movement and have worked together in the United Nations on agendas of common concerns.
