St. Kitts and Nevis Prime Minister Hon. Dr. Denzil L. Douglas said Thursday that careful planning and experienced leadership are vital to continued economic progress if St. Kitts and Nevis is to overcome the difficult global challenges that are ahead.

Pointing to the fact that the St. Kitts and Nevis economy has expanded in real terms by about 50 percent notwithstanding the closure of the sugar industry, Prime Minister Douglas said the vision of change is realisable with seasoned leadership and the continued resolve and commitment of its people.

“It is a vision that calls upon us to move to the next stage of development and to free ourselves of political animosity so that we accelerate our progress to a better society and an improved quality of life for every Kittitian and Nevisian. It is a vision that calls for national unity and invites us to be tolerant of differences of opinion as we embrace each other as brothers and sisters of this our fair beautiful and free land,” said Dr. Douglas in his radio and television broadcast Thursday morning.

Prime Minister Douglas is of the view that his governing St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party Administration is well placed to provide the leadership required to change the political culture, foster national unity and build a society of which every Kittitian and Nevisian would be proud.

“We are a Government of and for the people that has brought dramatic change to the economic and social landscape of St. Kitts and Nevis. We are well placed to build on that change and enhance the sustainability of that change by creating a more peaceful, and harmonious society in which each citizen; each resident and each visitor would feel happy and even more secure,” said Prime Minister Douglas, who noted that even before the drums of present carnival celebrations fade away and before the fun and frolic subside, nationals of the twin-island Federation must focus their attention on the year ahead with a view towards making New Year resolutions and crafting appropriate strategies to secure the continued advancement of each individual citizen, and of the nation as a whole.

St. Kitts and Nevis Prime Minister Hon. Dr. Denzil L. Douglas said continued strong leadership and experienced will be required to help the twin-island Federation face the global financial crisis and is confident his Labour Party will win the next general election constitutionally due by October next year.

Responding to a question during his monthly press conference on Wednesday afternoon, Prime Minister Douglas noted that the region and the world are facing tremendous challenges, including the global financial crises, some of which have already unfolded and others still on the horizon.

“Not for my Party, but for the sake and the benefit of the people of St. Kitts and Nevis. This country is going to need experienced (and) strong leadership to take us through this period. I believe that my Party has demonstrated its ability to bring this leadership to the country, especially considering the serious transformation that is taking place in the country, as we move our economy away from its dependence on sugar-agriculture over the centuries, to what we see as the bright and exciting prospects of tourism and hospitality, information and technology and financial services,” said Dr. Douglas.
