NIA CHARLESTOWN NEVIS (April 09, 2018) — Nevis was graced with a visit by a number of heads of state from the Caribbean on April 09, 2018, ahead of the official start of the 16th Conference of Governors-General and Presidents of the Caribbean Region in St. Kitts at the St. Kitts Marriott Resort from April 9 to 12.
His Excellency Sir Tapley Seaton, Governor General of St. Kitts and Nevis at the end of the visit said in remarks at the Nisbett Plantation Beach Club he was pleased to bring his colleagues to experience the sister island Nevis.
“It’s been a pleasure to see my colleagues and to bring them to the island of Nevis so that they can see what the Federation really is all about…It’s not often that we get heads of state who can come and who can relax for a while and so we have to treasure the moments,” he said.
Hon. Mark Brantley, Premier of Nevis in invited remarks welcomed the visiting delegates to the island and thanked them for coming.
He said the fact that the Governor General brought his colleagues to experience the other half of St. Kitts and Nevis, is a demonstration that the Federation is more than St. Kitts and is indeed two islands one paradise.
