St. Kitts Congratulates Antigua and Barbuda on 37th anniversary


Antigua and Barbuda celebrated its 37th anniversary of Independence on Nov. 1 and Prime Minister of St. Kitts and Nevis Dr. the Honourable Timothy Harris took time out to extend heartfelt congratulations to the government and people of the neighbouring country on this milestone.

“On this your Thirty-Seventh Anniversary of Independence, please allow me to express on behalf of the Government and people of St. Kitts and Nevis, and indeed on my own behalf, heartiest congratulations to you and the wonderful people of Antigua and Barbuda,” Prime Minister Harris said in a letter to Prime Minister, the Honourable Gaston Browne.

“We are mindful that only one year ago, your beloved country was ravaged by the passage of Hurricanes Irma and Maria,” Dr. Harris’ letter continued. “Natural disasters of this nature underscore the vulnerability of Small Island States like ours and pose perpetual threat to our existence. Your commitment and drive to unite and rebuild is therefore worthy of note, and serves as a clarion call to the people of the wider region!”

In his congratulatory letter to Prime Minister Browne, Dr. the Honourable Timothy Harris added, “As you celebrate this significant milestone, I pray Almighty God’s blessing and protection on you and the people of Antigua and Barbuda. May you grow in strength and prosperity in the difficult weeks and months ahead.”

  1. St. Kitt’s has a much better Citizenship by Investment (CBI) program than Antigua does. I wish our political leadership in Antigua would make our program better so we can earn more money as a country by doing three things like St Kitts does:

    1. Ensure that all CIP citizens are treated as equals, just like citizens that are born in Antigua. Currently it seems like we treat CIP citizens as 2nd class citizens – St. Kitts treats their CIP citizens as equals.

    2. Allow children born from CIP citizens to be Antigua citizens automatically – it is simply crazy that CIP citizen children do not automatically get Antigua citizenship when they are born. St. Kitts allows children born to their CIP citizens to automatically pass down citizenship without extra cost.

    3. That all Antigua and Barbuda citizenship status is protected as private and secret. Too often our government tells any media member who is or is not a citizen whenever they are asked – we need privacy that is protected by law!

    The above changes should help Antigua to have a more successful CIP program than St. Kitts, which will hopefully lead to things like us having enough money to pay back Antigua civil servants!
