St Kitts PM Congratulates Premier Cox

November 3, 2010

Prime Minister of St Kitts and Nevis Dr Denzil Douglas has congratulated new Premier Paula Cox saying “Your long and distinguished career in the public realm, most recently as Deputy Premier, will undoubtedly serve you well as you undertake the new role of leader of the Government of Bermuda.”

Dr. Denzil L. Douglas visited Bermuda from May 20 – 25, his second visit to the island, with the first being in 1996. During his time here, he addressed Parliament, hosted a Town Hall, watched the May 24th Parade, met various dignitaries and attended various functions. He said Bermuda and Bermudians were extremely welcoming, and that our positioning as an offshore financial centre served to inspire his own island.

Dr Douglas continued his statement on Premier Cox by saying “As you charter this new course, and seek to improve the lives of the people of your beautiful country, may wisdom and patience abound with you. It is my hope that the initiatives and endeavours of your Cabinet will be brought to successful fruition, bringing about continued prosperity and growth for all citizens.”

Dr. Douglas said his Government “looks forward to the building and strengthening of the special relationship that St. Kitts and Nevis and Bermuda share. Please be assured of our continued commitment to seek out new ways in which our two countries can partner together as we strive to bring about mutual benefit for all concerned.”

“I once again extend, on behalf of myself and the Government and People of the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis, sincere congratulations on this great achievement. In availing myself of the opportunity to extend to you the assurances of my highest consideration, please also accept best wishes for your personal well-being,” said Prime Minister Douglas.

    St Kitts just replaced many (but not all) of their indirect taxes with a flat 17% value added tax on all goods and services sold in the country.
