ST. GEORGE’S, GRENADA, May 30, 2014 – GIS: Prime Minister Dr. Keith Mitchell said that the time has come for Grenadians of political and other divides to unite to move the country forward.

The Grenada leader emphasized the importance of coming together, especially in a time of Structural Adjustment and Fiscal Reforms. Dr. Mitchell described as significant the support for the government of old foe, former Tourism and Foreign Affairs Minister, Peter David.

He is delighted with the move, saying that for too long nationals have been fighting, dividing and hurting each other. Prime Minister Mitchell was speaking at a recent Constituency Forum at the New Hampshire Community Center, in St George Northeast. He said that more could be achieved as a nation if we were to work together, rather than fighting, dividing and pulling each other down.

“So much more can be achieved, if we unite our forces, if we come together irrespective of our differences,” the Prime Minister said to a rousing applause. Dr. Mitchell welcomes the inclusion of former Tourism and Foreign Affairs Minister, Peter David, to the government, who, he pointed out, was not joining the New National Party (NNP) for party politics; but pledging support for his beloved country, which is what is needed during these tough economic times.

“As far as I am concerned, Peter is not joining Keith Mitchell or Gregory Bowen, Peter is joining the people of Grenada Carriacou and Petite Martinique,” Dr Mitchell said to another loud round of applause. “This unity theme is critical, let us not play with it. I am convinced that what you are going to see is more juices start to flow for all the people of Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique.”

Prime Minister Mitchell says his government has won the support of the International Community, who is impressed with the measures being taken to revive the economy. He said they are supportive of the Home Grown Program and will be providing serious financial assistance. As such Dr. Mitchell stresses the importance of unity. “It is time we come to terms [with the fact] that everyone has strengths and also weaknesses; so if we pull our strengths together, this country will be a better place.”
