The government of St. Vincent and the Grenadines will commission the publication of text of the history of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

“The history is in bits and pieces. We need to put it all in one volume,” Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves said in making the announcement during his Independence address Friday.

The address was delivered during the military parade to mark the nation’s 38th anniversary of independence from Britain.
