Premier of Nevis, the Hon. Joseph Parry, has appealed for calm and said the Nevis Island Administration (NIA) is doing everything within its means to ensure that the recent upsurge in criminal activity on Nevis continues to be properly monitored.

“I have had regular discussions with the police and they have assured me that they are working very closely with the police in St.Kitts, in terms of monitoring movements between St.Kitts and Nevis, efforts are also being made to increase the number of persons on the force in Nevis and for Culturama, special arrangements have been made”.

The Hon. Joseph Parry said this on Tuesday in the Nevis House of Assembly when the Nevis Island Administration landmark legislation, The Nevis Geothermal Resources Development Ordinance, 2008 was tabled, debated and passed by the Nevis Island Administration.

During the Premier’s opening “Statements by Ministers”, he made an appeal for the people of all the various communities in Nevis to be our brother’s keeper.  He urged the general public to make information on suspicious activities available to the Police thus assisting the Police in crime solving.

New Cultural Development Foundation For Nevis

Charlestown, Nevis
March 27, 2008

There is going to be a bright future for fine Arts in Nevis.  That statement was made by Premier of Nevis the Hon. Joseph Parry on Tuesday March 25, 2008, while he officially launched the Nevis Cultural Development Foundation during a ceremony dotted with Nevisian folklore, dance and music at a ceremony which took place at the Nevis Cultural Center.
 
Mr. Parry said the establishment of the Foundation had become necessary to relieve Government from continually subsidising cultural activities.  He said too that it would also be able to access regional and international funding for the development of culture and arts.
 
“This Foundation will be able to mobilise resources from public and private sector institutions. Additionally, the Foundation will bridge the gap between Culturama and culture, that is, we believe that culture and cultural activities should give the fillip to Culturama.  The Foundation will ensure that there is no duplication of resources and staff and will maximise human and financial resources.
 
“There is going to be a bright future for the Fine Arts in Nevis and as you may know, there is money to be made from the arts, especially with its link to tourism. Cultural activities, masquerades, dance and drama will only boost our tourism,” he said.
