The Premier of Nevis, the Hon. Joseph Parry addressed an enthusiastic crowd on the achievements of Nevis over the last 25 years, at the launch of activities for the Silver Jubilee Celebration for the St. Kitts & Nevis 25th Anniversary of Independence. The opening took place on Thursday afternoon at the Nevis Tourism Authority apron in Charlestown.

“This afternoon is a special time for us, as it is the beginning of the celebration of our 25th Anniversary. It was 25 years ago that St.Kitts and the island of Nevis, this twin island nation, took the bold step of Independence. It was 25 years ago that this island with $250,000 started the government of Nevis. Many persons had low expectations, because a small sum of $250,000 was not expected to take us anywhere. I must say that we had a country that had a number of problems. We had a problem with Infrastructure, roads, water services, electricity, and telephone communications. However, today I am proud to say to you that we have overcome all of our infrastructure, and utility problems and on top of that, we have some of the best roads in the Caribbean, here on the island of Nevis,” declared Premier Parry.

On that declaration, the Premier received a thunderous applause.

Today in Nevis, according to the Premier, the island has a water system where every household can boast of having running water 24 hours a day.

“We have every reason to be proud, especially since last month the Nevis Reformation Party led Nevis Island Administration has implemented one million gallons of water into the system,” said the Premier.
