Prime Minister Dr. Terrance Drew Off Island Again as he Joins Distinguished Panel at 2024 Concordia Americas Summit in Miami, Florida

Prime Minister Dr. Terrance Drew of St. Kitts and Nevis continues his active participation in global forums, with his latest engagement being the 2024 Concordia Americas Summit in Miami, Florida. Fresh off a ten-day visit to Dubai with his wife, the Prime Minister’s presence at the summit underscores his commitment to active personal participation in every global forum possible.

The Concordia Americas Summit, now in its eighth year, serves as a pivotal platform for nonpartisan dialogue between public and private sectors across the Western Hemisphere. This year’s summit focuses on driving sustainable and inclusive growth, as well as strengthening democracy and the economy—a theme that resonates deeply with the challenges and aspirations of the Caribbean region.

As discussions unfold on critical issues such as poverty alleviation, healthcare, education, and environmental sustainability, Prime Minister Drew’s participation highlights the importance of Caribbean voices in shaping regional strategies for progress. His insights and contributions to the panel will undoubtedly enrich the dialogue and inform policy decisions aimed at addressing the unique needs of small island nations like St. Kitts and Nevis.

However, the Prime Minister’s frequent overseas engagements have not gone unnoticed, with scrutiny mounting over the extensive travel undertaken by both him and his cabinet ministers. Reports suggest that some ministers log up to 10 to 15 days of travel per month, accompanied by substantial per diem payments. While the pursuit of international partnerships and investment opportunities is essential for economic development, questions arise regarding the balance between travel expenses and tangible outcomes for the nation.
