The lives of poor ordinary Vincentians are expected to improve further after the government of St. Vincent and the Grenadines signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) this morning with the Republic of India.

Prime minister the Hon Dr. Ralph Gonsalves and H.E. Mahender Singh Kanyal, High Commissioner of the Republic of India to SVG signed the MOU on ‘Quick Impact Projects’ at Cabinet Room. PM Gonsalves explained that the MOU will address some small projects which can bring quick results and help to lift the condition of life and living for people in one way or the other.

The Prime Minister thanked the Government and people of the Republic of India and in particular Prime Minister Modi whom he said has a hand on the pulse of the people and just like him “has a profound commitment to helping the poor and marginalized and those who suffer from particular hardship and discrimination.”

Mahender Singh Kanyal said that SVG and the Republic of India have very good relations which have been strengthened after the official visit of PM Gonsalves to that country in September this year. The Ambassador said that the two countries are expected to sign more MOUs in the areas of health, traditional systems of medicines, and cultural programs among other areas. He assured Pm Gonsalves that India will be opened to consider any other requests under the Technical Development Partnership for Projects concerning infrastructure and any other projects that fall in the line of national priorities for the government of SVG.

  1. India needs SVGs UN Vote for a number of reasons which include Pakistan, Iran, and Kashmir where they have been very aggressive.

    They have openly said they will support no US sanctions of any country and that includes Venezuela and Iran. They are openly breaking US sanctions with Iran and sooner or later the US will act against them.

    It may well be that Gonsalves will eventually bring the wrath of US sanctions on our little island with his UN votes for cash and favour policy.
