Hammer, who was in Nevis recently for a courtesy call on Premier Joseph Parry, said he has been keeping abreast of Nevis’ work with geothermal and he is pleased to see all the effort that the island has put in place to make the renewable energy a regular electricity source.
At the end of the meeting Premier Parry told his Department of Information that he was pleased to meet with Mr. Hammar and hoped the relationship formed would continue to grow.
Renewable energy was just one of the subjects discussed by the two officials.
Mr. Hammer also admitted that he was pleased to see Nevis ahead of Sweden in the way of development of Geothermal, an energy source that the Scandinavian country will seek to exploit in the near future.
Ambassador Hammar has had a long history of serving Sweden on overseas duties. He has served in Brazil, South Africa and the United States of America.
The meeting which took place at Parry’s Bath House offices was scheduled as part of the diplomat’s first visit to Nevis.
