BASSETERRE, St. Kitts, February 15, 2017 (Press Unit in the Office of the Prime Minister) – The Dr. the Honourable Timothy Harris-led Team Unity Administration of St. Kitts and Nevis is observing its third anniversary of being elected to office with an extended week of activities that encourages the building of stronger communities and creating opportunities for all.
The extended week of celebrations is being observed under the theme, “Opening Doors and Creating Opportunities Through Service and Empowerment.”
Prime Minister Dr. the Honourable Timothy Harris, while appearing on the “Frank and Candid” radio programme on ZIZ Radio with host Newrish Nital earlier today (February 15), stated after three years in office, his Team Unity Cabinet remains committed and energized to deliver a better quality of life for the people of St. Kitts and Nevis.
“I have found in my Cabinet colleagues…a commitment, notwithstanding the challenges which we face as a government, to subordinate their own personal convenience and interests for a broader goal of contributing to national development,” Prime Minister Harris said.
Dr. Harris further noted that one of the defining hallmarks of his Team Unity Government is the increased level of cooperation that now exists between the Federal Government and the Nevis Island Administration.
“Unity is what we promised, and I think people have been able to experience unity in a way they have not witnessed it before,” the prime minister said. “The people of Nevis in particular have never felt a genuine embrace by the federal entity. For the first time we have made a significant breakthrough in that regard, and it delighted me very much to hear the leaders in Nevis speak of their satisfaction and pleasure of working in a Federal government that is very much attuned and sensitize to the reasonable expectations of the people of Nevis.”
The full slate of activities for the Team Unity anniversary runs from today, Thursday, February 15 to Sunday, February 25 and includes two church services – one on the 18th in Nevis and the other on the 25th in St. Kitts; a gospel concert; a National Volunteer Day on Saturday, February 17th; a National College, Health and Career Fair in Independence Square on Friday, February 23rd, as well as the launch of the National Health Insurance Implementation Commission.
