Nevis’ Premier Parry Addresses Group
May 07, 2008
In keeping with its policy to train workers in all fields of endeavour on Nevis and to accommodate the demands of the Construction Industry, the Nevis Island Administration (NIA) selected 18 young persons to travel to Trinidad on May 12, 2008, to receive three months of extensive training in Construction and Auto Mechanics, at the Metal Construction Industries (MCI) in Trinidad.
The young persons met with Premier of Nevis Hon. Joseph Parry, Minister of Social Transformation Hon. Hensley Daniel and Minister of Land and Housing Hon. Robelto Hector on Thursday May 01, for an orientation exercise prior to their departure.
Premier Parry expressed contentment over the arrangement for young men and women to be trained, which he said would enhance their business, technical and social prowess.
“In this way these young persons will be able to become supervisors, foremen and eventually contractors. In addition to that, they will be able to operate at a high level in regard to working on some of the projects that we hope to have over the next few years.
“This is only the beginning of the training programmes that we have for young people on the island and we are hoping that it will help to create a pool of very good workers and it will also help to lessen some of the problems we have with delinquency and crime,” Mr. Parry said.
