Fellow Nevisians, residents of Nevis and visitors,
It gives me great pleasure to bring you greetings on this, the 33rd Anniversary of our Independence. Today, as a nation, we have reached yet another milestone in our journey of self -determination and nationhood. Today, we stand in unison, as a Federation reflecting on our strength, progress and achievement over the past 33 years.
Independence affords us the opportunity to recommit and rededicate ourselves to building a stronger and more prosperous nation. As Alexander Bustamante put it years ago, “Independence means the opportunity for us to frame our destiny and the need to rely on ourselves.”
