In 2012, the first visit by a Foreign Minister of Saint Lucia to Brazil took place. On that occasion, discussions were held on Brazilian cooperation with the Caribbean, especially in the areas of family agriculture and food security, and on prospects of airline connections between Brazil and the Caribbean.
Technical cooperation of the Brazilian government with Saint Lucia gained momentum with the signing of technical cooperation agreements in the areas of security and agriculture during the First Brazil-Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Summit,. In November, 2010, the Brazilian government contributed with resources and personnel to support of projects, mainly in the framework of actions to minimize the effects of hurricane "Tomas" in Saint Lucia (with implementation by the "Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency" (CDEMA), through the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO)). Within the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), body with permanent headquarters in Saint Lucia, a shipment of antiretroviral drugs was delivered by Brazil in October 2012.
In the educational and cultural fields, the cooperation in diplomatic training through the participation of diplomat from an OESC country in the training course of the Rio Branco Institute and the Course for Caribbean Diplomats (organized by the Alexandre de Gusmão Foundation (FUNAG)), should be highlighted.
