Basseterre: Dr Timothy Harris, Prime Minister of St. Kitts and Nevis, has congratulated the Government and people of Grenada on their 48th anniversary of independence.

On Monday, February 7, 2022, the OECS nation celebrated its 48th anniversary of independence.

In a congratulatory message to Prime Minister of Grenada, Dr Keith Mitchell, Prime Minister Harris said, “On behalf of the Government and citizens of the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis, and on my personal behalf, I extend heartfelt congratulations to you and the people of Grenada, on this celebratory occasion – Forty-eight Anniversary of Independence.”

The theme for the country’s 48th anniversary was “Overcoming our Adversity – Protecting Livelihoods – Protecting Our Future.”

The theme “speaks to bringing all citizens together in a spirit of unity and strength,” according to Prime Minister Harris.

Dr. Harris stated, “It is my genuine hope that Grenadians will celebrate this milestone with renewed enthusiasm, fortitude, commitment, and collective will to make a positive influence and continue to contribute in Grenada’s overall growth.”
