Prime Minster Leads Delegation in Dubai

Dr. Douglas, who arrived in Dubai on Sunday night, is holding discussions with potential investors.

Dr. Douglas is accompanied by Minister of Tourism, Richard Skerritt; Permanent Secretary in the Prime Minister’s Office, Mrs. Astona Browne; Consul General of St. Kitts and Nevis, Ms. Alex Woodley and Press Secretary to the Prime Minister Mr. Erasmus Williams.

Monday morning it was reported that he held talks with Senior Vice President of Hyatt, Mr. Pat McCuddeen and Mr. Mohammed Asaria, Vice Chairman, Range Developments and Munaf Ali, CEO of Range Developments.

He is also expected to hold discussions with other officials.
