Prime Minister of St. Kitts and Nevis, the Honourable Dr. Terrance Michael Drew, said that the government is committed to restoring transparency and good governance in the Federation while working to improve lives and livelihoods.
Delivering remarks at the Swearing-in Ceremony of the Members of Cabinet on Saturday, August 13, 2022, at the Warner Park Cricket Stadium, Prime Minister Drew highlighted several areas that the government intends to work on to put the country back in the number one position.
“Your government will work to restore the reputation of the Citizenship by Investment (CBI) programme, that is a top priority. Your team will seek to strengthen the tourism and hospitality sector to make it more resilient to external shocks,” said Prime Minister Drew. “There will be meaningful investments in food production and small business creation. Serious farmers, fishers and other entrepreneurs will be supported to the extent possible.”
However, given the setbacks due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Drew said that the Federation cannot depend on the CBI and tourism only and must utilize other means to boost the economy such as innovation and Information and Communication Technology (ICT).
