St Kitts and Nevis: Minister of Trade and Consumer Affairs in the Nevis Island Administration (NIA) and Premier of Nevis Mark Brantley have welcomed and appreciated the recent joint retreat of the Department of Consumer Affairs in the Federation of St Kitts and Nevis. 

The Department of Trade and Consumer Affairs on Nevis has hosted the retreat event. It was held at the Malcolm Guishard Recreational Park in celebration of World Consumer Rights Day. 

While emphasizing the significance of the event, Premier Brantley said that the event is an important initiative that would assist the consumers across the twin-island Federation. 

He stated that the consumers are the beneficiaries as the government really believes that the initiatives will ultimately lead to view and lead to a point. The consumers across the Federation and the island of Nevis will also be benefited from possible prices, the benefit of the best possible quality of food and other products that they consume and use.

Brantley further noted, “Certainly, the consumers have a very important role in uplifting the country consumer affairs and also ensured the what comes in is of good quality. We all have to work in collaboration with the general public. We all have to collaborate with the merchants and also with those who are in the private sector. We also have to ensure that all of us are on the same stage”. 

He further outlined the benefits of the retreat and stated that it provided the opportunity to co-mix and commingle s that they could share their ideas to improve their best practices. It will also benefit from understanding the challenges consumers faced on both islands, and also it depends on the matter of how they could address their issues together with unity. 

“We believe the two islands as one country, but we sometimes need a very critical approach to fix various problems because sometimes the problems are unique to one another. So I am very pleased that the staff has decided to do this to celebrate World Consumer Rights Day,” underscored Brantley. 

Premier of Nevis also expressed hope that both the department will make efforts in educating, outreach and sensitization the community so that they could ensure the better wrong for themselves and promote the work they do.
