Grenada and St Kitts-Nevis to join ALBA

alba-logoGrenada and St Kitts and Nevis have both announced that they will join the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of the Americas, known by its Spanish acronym ALBA.

ALBA is an international cooperation organization based on the idea of the social, political and economic integration of the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean.

Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell said that the Grenada government has formally put in its application to become a member.

The Grenadian leader said he expects the process to take up to a month to finalise.

    So after all pressure our Prime Minister received years ago when we joined Alba, the OECS has followed.

    We have to be thankful that we are blessed with such visionary Prime Minister!

    @Top Civil Servant,My Boy and For Richer or Poorer, if you all would stop a while from listening to garbage like the “Animal Show” and spend more time listening to more constructive discussions and programs, I am pretty sure you all would have heard the current leader of the UWP Lennox Linton, advocate a position on ALBA on more than one occasion.

    Up to now UWP has not provided their policy on ALBA. However they have criticized the organization as a military pack.

      What can they say except that The Honourable Prime Minister Skeritt is a visionary Prime Minister and they could pretend to have learnt something.

      Woye,Woye that would be a bitter pill to swallow.

      My best bet would be they would say, blame the PM that Grenada and St. Kitts & Nevis would spring that now making The PM look like a genius again to his people and others.
