Arnhim Eustace

Arnhim Ulric Eustace (born 1944) is a development economist and politician from Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. He served in the New Democratic Party government of James Fitz-Allen Mitchell and became Prime Minister on October 27, 2000, when Mitchell retired. The newcomer to politics only served as Prime Minister for five months, as in the next parliamentary elections, held on March 28, 2001, the New Democratic Party suffered a landslide defeat, retaining only three of the 15 parliamentary seats. Eustace retained his seat and is now the Leader of the Opposition in the House of Assembly of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

With a Master's Degree in Economics, Eustace also has a lengthy record of international service. His directorship of the Caribbean Development Bank, chairmanship of the Windward Islands Banana Development and Exporting Company and SVG National Insurance Scheme, and directorship of Planning and Finance for the SVG Ministry of Finance, among other posts, attracted the attention of the Commonwealth Secretariat which offered him the job of Deputy Secretary General in 1998, a post he declined.
