SKN celebrates World Metrology Day 2023

St. Kitts & Nevis joined the rest of the world in observing Metrology Day 2023 on May 20th. The theme for World Metrology Day was: “Measurements supporting the global food system”.




World metrology says “this theme was chosen because of the increasing challenges of climate change, and global distribution of food in a world whose population reached 8 billion at the end of 2022.”




World Metrology Day is an annual celebration of the signature of the Metre Convention on May 20th, 1875 by representatives of seventeen nations.




The Convention set the framework for global collaboration in the science of measurement and in its industrial, commercial and societal applications
