Premier of the island, Joseph Parry, said that if a country does not have proper infrastructure like roads and water, that country cannot have further development.
He said his government is progressive and he asserted that “The transformation of Nevis has begun under the NRP, and it will continue until the day comes, when Nevis will be the glorious paradise of the Caribbean.”
The Premier said that his NRP-led Administration is in the business of transforming the country and that the plant will save the island hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The Nevis Island Administration recently purchased the new state-of -the -art asphalt plant to better address the growing infrastructural needs of the island, said Parry.
While addressing his audience at the commissioning of the new asphalt plant at New River, in St. James Parish, on Friday, (24th June, 2011), Parry underscored the value of planning, as a way forward for the people of Nevis
He explained that his administration’s plan was to be people-focused, to make people’s lives better, so those who didn’t have homes would now have homes. Those who didn’t have an education have now received an education, and many can see the purpose of the water programs, agriculture, roads, and development in tourism, outlined the Premier.
