Dr Harris was on Thursday 20th January updating a distinguished audience from the private sector on his government’s efforts to accede to a partial scope agreement involving Guyana and Brazil; an agreement which when signed would see trade grow in geometric terms.
“As former Minister of Education, and a father of a child attending what was formerly the St Theresa’s Convent School. I want again to thank the Mezzalingua family, the Principal of this company for the significant investment of millions of dollars that it has made in our education sector through the upgrade and expansion of the former Convent School. Kajola Kristada has become a permanent part of our socio economic landscape. It is an important part of our manufacturing sector and has been contributing directly to the livelihood of 193 employees here in St Kitts”.
Dr Harris said that St Kitts was fortunate to have a company of this caliber and the strong corporate social responsibility ethos as Kajola Kristada. “I pledge to do all that I can to ensure that Kajola Kristada is part of the St Kitts and Nevis’ landscape for the long haul”, the International Trade Minister said.
Meantime Josa Rosa, General Manager of Kajola Kristada, has singled out and praised Dr Dr. Harris for his outstanding support to his company and his leadership on the pursuance of the partial scope agreement with Brazil. Mr. Rosa described Minister Harris as a friend who is readily accessible to his company and the business community.
