Basseterre, St. Kitts, July 21, 2023 (SKNIS): The Government of St. Kitts and Nevis is preparing to roll out several capital projects that will further boost economic activity and continue public infrastructure upgrades.
During “The Roundtable” media engagement on Friday (July 21), Prime Minister the Honourable Dr. Terrance Drew said that the resurfacing of the St. Peter’s main road and the construction of the new Basseterre High School are out for tender. Additional capital projects scheduled in the short term include the construction of the new smart hospital, road repairs within various communities, the start of the housing project, and upgrade work at the Conaree Playing Field.
The prime minister noted that the process to jump-start these projects was delayed as each project had to go through the Procurement Board.
“You will see a number of projects being rolled out over the next few weeks to get the economy going in terms of infrastructural developments,” Dr. Drew indicated, noting that other sectors will be firing on all cylinders.
“So, we are going to have infrastructural development with tourism bouncing back, orange economy, agriculture, and so forth moving together at some point, building the foundation to take us forward,” the prime minister stated.
