President of the Nevis Island Assembly, the Hon. Farrell Smithen, urged Nevisians to support the contingent at the CPA conference. Mr. Smithen, says the topic is appropriate, due to the movement of persons in the region from one place to another.


It is understood, that the youth parliamentarians would be giving an account of the reasons for the movement of people and the problems some countries face as a result. A contingent participated in the Bahamas in 2016, in Tortola in 2015 and in Barbados 2014.
