Nevis Premier, the Hon. Joseph Parry delivered the Keynote address at the ninth annual luncheon of the Hearts and Hands for Nevis Inc. in New York on Sunday, January 20th at the elegant Crowne Plaza Hotel in Queens, New York.
Premier Parry began his speech by acknowledging the recent death of 18 year old Miss Valencia Robins of Jessups village. “On Friday evening I learnt of the sad death of Miss Robins, daughter of Claire Robins and Vaughn Anslyn and the granddaughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frederick Doras and Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Anslyn. On behalf of the people of Nevis, I extend our heart felt condolences.”
Mr. Parry was invited by the non-profitable Nevisian organization to speak on the topic, “The Vision for Nevis”.
During his keynote address, Mr. Parry discussed establishing Nevis as a top Tourism destination in the Caribbean. “Niche Tourism has worked well in Nevis. We shall consolidate by establishing Nevis as the number one tourism destination in the Caribbean. Along with the Four Seasons Brand we shall establish another hotel with a reputation even more regarded than the Four Seasons. This will consolidate a position already recognized in the United States of America and would attract the more high-end players in the industry.”
