Nevis has a very high reputation in the international marketplace, that’s according to Premier of Nevis, the Hon Joseph Parry who is responsible for Tourism and Economic Planning.  Mr. Parry made the statement on Friday February 16th 2007 at a press conference during which he reported on a number of issues. He said that as his Nevis Reformation Party (NRP)led-Administration continued its negotiations with Newfound Development Company, maintaining the country’s reputation in this regard would be at the forefront.

“Some people have been comparing between the peninsula and Nevis and saying that you can have synergies between the peninsula and Nevis, many people have done that. They are talking about high-end in Nevis complimenting high-end hotels on the peninsula and that is something else that we must also bear in mind.

I can assure the people of Nevis that as we [NIA] continue our discussions we will bear that very much in mind”. He said.
