  1. Kyrgyzstan is a small country with a population of about six million it is located in Asia.The IMF report for 2018 said there Economy grow by 3.5 percent and was expecting to hit 3.8 percent this year.and it’s a young Democracy.l think it is a good idea for us to have Diplomatic relationship with them.

  2. Its a shame that Gonsalves cannot simply stay at home and concentrate on getting things right here.

    Creating jobs and attracting some new industry. Get our people working and bring some happiness to a lost nation stumbling in the darkness of failed socialism.

    It really is time for us to stop this political tourism in the search of countries to scrounge from in return for our vote in the UN.

  3. Rember this is why the both house isreal and the house of Judah was sent into captivity by Jehovah God by this very same thing here wake up Christian st Vincent and the grenadine we in the entime. what was in the beginning so shall it be 8n the end the word of Jehovah God is fulfilling each day all around us.

  4. Respect

    PM Ralph, you are not very wise in this Regress Education Revolution. Instead of going forward you always in reverse.
    Why you did not informed the Nation about these Countries leaders that you wet at the UN assembly and just tie us to their Nations with a smile.

    No information on these Countries, what Benefits to our people, tangible or intangible.
    We are still being treated in the slavery mentality run thru DNA of clan families who did trade as merchandise.
    We SVG are not your goods to be sold anytime over glass of wine. I object to this behavior of yours, Respect us man!

    My to cents

  5. Dictatorships are not democracies CALLIAQUAMA and do remember that masters never seek the opinions of their slaves! Moreover, do keep in mind that running this destitute SVG plantation, where much of the plantation is forever idle, needs Aid Donations from wherever one can find it!

    No matter how unsavoury the Aid donor is, we sure need their Development Aid, as the family regime’s, U.L.P, have not come up with any good Economic development plans for SVG during their past 19 years in office. Look, you could not get more unsavoury than Venezuela and Cuba and see how close we are to them. https://www.iwnsvg.com/2019/09/29/vincy-students-meeting-it-hard-amidst-new-crisis-cuba/

    Kyrgyzstan and Ukraine apart, the enclave micro state of Republic of San Marino, that is completely surrounded by Italy,and is however, one of the wealthiest countries in the world in terms of GDP (per capita), with a population of about a third of ours and having the lowest unemployment in Europe. such wealth and achievement is something this plantation cannot and could not achieve CALLIAQUAMA in 19 years.

    Therefore the Republic of San Marino is the ideal place to pass that glossy, shiny begging bowl of ours. All we have to do is stay on our knees and keep on smiling. We must show those pearls to survive! The education revolution is sure not needed for that. We are trained for this bended knees begging and bowl passing, and we are now very, very good at it. Plus the P.M & Co gets to travel the world and see the sights!
