NDC on European Tour

Two executive members of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is currently touring Europe to meet with political parties and business groups as part of a finance and aid seeking mission.

The delegation is headed by Political leader, Nazim Burke, who is a former Minister of Finance, and ex-Tourism Minister, Dr. George Vincent, the current Chairman of the party.

The NDC members have already visited Switzerland where several meetings were held focusing on building relations with other political parties.

According to a party official, some of the meetings held with political organisations and private businesses were done in an effort to seek assistance for Grenada.

One of the enterprises concerned is an Agri-Business Company to explore the possibilities for agro-processing on the island.

The Congress official said that the two-man delegation also held a meeting with the Chocolate Manufacturers Association in Switzerland to look at the possibilities of increasing the production and productivity of small farmers and agro-processers.

Burke and Dr. Vincent are currently in London, England to take part in two seminars with the Progressive Alliance in London on September 22 and 23.

The official pointed out that the two political senators, Burke and Dr. Vincent will meet with the Grenada Diaspora in London on September 24 and 25.

Before leaving for the trip last week, Dr. Vincent told a radio talk show program that NDC was looking forward to hearing from the Grenadian community in London, and to present the party’s position to them on a number of issues.

He said it is hoped that the meetings will result in the formation of NDC Chapters in the United Kingdom and Europe.

The delegation will head to Germany on September 26 for meetings with two foundations that are concerned with Democracy, Labour Issues and Livelihood.

Dr. Vincent said Congress would be looking to the Foundations to provide the NDC with measures for capacity building in order to be able to help the people of Grenada.

NDC has been trying to rebuild following its massive 15-0 defeat at the polls nineteen months ago at the hands of the New National Party (NNP) of Prime Minister Dr. Keith Mitchell.
