Nevisian Private Sector group address concerns with Premier Amory
Delegates of the Public Private Sector, upon request, met with Vance Amory at the Nevis Island Administration (NIA) Conference Room on September, 08, 2015, to discuss issues pertaining to the youth and by extension the people of Nevis.
The Premier voiced three major concerns of the group, namely: crime rate, the government’s development plan and the Citizenship by Investment (CBI) programme.
In addressing these problems, Mr. Amory stated that a contingent from the St. Kitts and Nevis Defence Force has been enlisted on a permanent basis and police activities have been increased.
He also pointed out the major government owned projects as being the refurbishment of all schools on the island, the rehabilitation of the Education Building at Marion’s Height and the upgrading of the Alexandra Hospital.
According to Mr. Amory, the functionalism of the Citizenship by Investment Program was affected by its poor management which may take as much as a year before it is corrected. He mentioned that its purpose was to attract investments geared towards economic development.
Other members of the delegation were, Evelyn Cyril, Oscar Walters, Susan Gordon, Debra Lellouch and Deborah Allistyson. Also present was Permanent Secretary in the Premier’s Ministry Wakely Daniel.
