The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) has noted the significant progress St Kitts and Nevis has made, as the Member State marks its Thirty-Sixth Anniversary of Independence on 19 September 2019.
In a congratulatory message to the Prime Minister of St. Kitts and Nevis Dr. The Honourable Timothy Harris, CARICOM Secretary-General Ambassador Irwin LaRocque said the country is “justified in celebrating its achievement with pride.”
St Kitts and Nevis is celebrating this independence anniversary under the theme, “Unify, Transform, and Enrich: Uplifting Communities for Independence 36.” Secretary-General LaRocque said the theme promotes the continuation of the collective will and actions of the country, to further its socio-economic development.
The Secretary-General acknowledged the “unwavering commitment and leadership” of Prime Minister Harris as Chairman of CARICOM during the first six months of this year at a challenging time for the Community.
“The Community looks forward to St. Kitts and Nevis’ continued leadership in advancing issues related to Human Resource Development, Health and HIV/AIDS, its portfolio in the Quasi-Cabinet of CARICOM,” the Secretary-General said.
