Minister of State in the Office of the Prime Minister With the Responsibility for Tourism, Sports, and Culture Richard Skerrit of Saint Kitts and Nevis

BASSETERRE, St Kitts, June 26, 2008 - St Kitts and Nevis Tourism Minister Richard Skerrit says this twin-island nation will continue to focus on attracting luxury travellers despite the current economic climate of soaring fuel prices, high air fares, inflation and a sagging United States dollar.
Most of the projects had been preapproved at the 2009 Budget Estimates Committee meeting in October but the Minister of State for Sports Honorable Richard Skerrit was seeking guidance in relation to prioritization,” Minister Carty stated.
