St Kitts and Nevis Prime Minister Dr Denzil Douglas will began an Official Working Visit to India later this week.

Douglas left Tuesday for London, where he will be joined by Kevin Isaac, St Kitts and Nevis’ High Commissioner to the Court of St James.

The delegation also includes Senior Assistant Secretary in the Office of the Prime Minister, Beverly Knight.

It marks the second recent visit by a Caribbean leader to India, following the visit by Trinidad and Tobago Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar in January.

A report last year by the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean found that there was “significant potential” for increasing exports to India in the medium term.

Another Caribbean country, Jamaica, also recently announced that it would be seeking to attract Indian investment to the country.
