BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS, MAY 6TH 2010 (CUOPM) – St. Kitts and Nevis Prime Minister Hon. Dr. Denzil L. Douglas is to visit Bermuda on an official visit.
Dr. Douglas has accepted an invitation from the Premier of Bermuda, Dr. the Hon. Ewart F. Brown.“Three out of every five Bermudian families can claim some ancestry in St. Kitts and Nevis,” Premier Browne told Prime Minister Douglas in his letter of invitation.
“With such close links between Bermuda and St. Kitts and Nevis it is a tremendous honour to welcome Dr. Douglas during our Heritage Month celebrations. The Prime Minister has also committed to reaching out to the local Kittitian community and those who retain close links to the Island by hosting a town-hall meeting to discuss recent developments and change in St. Kitts and Nevis,” the Premier is quoted in The Royal Gazette.
While in the Bermuda capital, Prime Minister Douglas will visit the House of Assembly, pay courtesy calls on the Speaker and Deputy Speaker and address the 36-member lawmaking body.
He will also visit the British-appointed Governor and tour the Dockyard and Commissioner's House.
