Lindsay Grant, the minister of tourism, the honorable Nevis politician greeted more than 30 Chinese investors who are currently based in the federation to highlight their services and products to the world, at the same time looking for chances to spend in St. Kitts and Nevis.
To quote Grant as explained at the time of the ceremony organized at the Ocean Terrace Inn Aug. 10th, “We are very thrilled that you would have made this visit in your continued quest to build partnerships with us here in St. Kitts and Nevis in the areas of business, tourism, trade, services, and cultural reciprocity among others. You are all from various backgrounds and so I am elated to be among some of the best minds of your beloved country.”
Grant in a few words emphasized the relationship between St. Kitts and Nevis and China, back to 1983.
“Over the years, the common interests that bind us and underpin our relationship have become much broader and deeper,” he said. “We are coordinating and cooperating with each other in far more areas than before. Our communication and coordination have been deepening with regard to major international and regional issues and the strategic nature and global significance of our relationship are more evident than ever.”
The minister further added by saying about the advantages that many nationals and the countries have received. He also said it’s his belief that the investors will usher higher profits to the federation. Grant mentioned about the latest initiative which granted citizens of St. Kitts and Nevis a 30-day visa-free entry into Taiwan.
“Further, we continue to benefit from your scholarship programme and now boasts a cadre of professionals in various fields who would have graduated from the best universities in Taiwan. This for us is symbolic, as we continue to invest in our nation’s future. I can also speak to the fact that our government has signed an agreement with Taiwan for an initiative that is expected to improve food production and preservation in the twin-island federation.”
