Prime Minister of St Kitts and Nevis, Dr. Terrance Drew, says his administration hopes to transform the twin-island federation into a sustainable small island state.

He was speaking during his visit to the United Kingdom (UK) for the coronation ceremony of King Charles III.

Following the ceremony, the prime minister and others were invited to the Church House adjacent to Westminster Abbey, where the UK Foreign Secretary hosted a reception.

He engaged other world leaders and expressed the need for partnership support to move the country forward without the limiting concept of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per capita.

While there, Drew said his government plans to establish a task force charged with animating appropriate strategic approaches to address the ongoing water issues, renewables, developing mechanisms to manage sustainably the Federation’s marine resources, and forge, through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, partnerships to achieve those strategic, targeted, and measurable goals.

He also discussed upcoming geothermal projects and the vision to expand fisheries within the Federation.

Drew further maximised the opportunity to share information on his approach to universal healthcare and asked for support from the United Nations in prioritising healthcare access across the Caribbean.
