News from the Turks and Caicos Islands:

National Alliance Group formed
Published on August 17, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

A group of Turks and Caicos Islanders comprising supporters of both political parties have come together to form a group known as the National Alliance Group (NAG).

The main objective of this group is to promote socio-economic development for Turks and Caicos Islanders. In so doing, the group will actively seek the support of government, opposition and the private sector to ensure that this goal is achieved.

Chairman of the group, Reuben Hall, said, “I am very excited and committed about the objective of this group. I am well pleased that Turks and Caicos Islanders can come together despite their political affiliations. This group will also assist with coaching and mentoring Turks and Caicos Islanders, especially the young persons.”

Drexwell Seymour, treasurer of the group, also said, “I believe the formation of such a group is long overdue and look forward to the contribution that the Group will make in the Turks and Caicos Islands.”

Wayne Garland, public relations officer for the group, said, “I am extremely elated with this development. I believe a group like this could be the impetus for the beginning of something good for the Turks and Caicos Islands; the promotion and development of Turks and Caicos Islanders to take their places within the society.”

Lorne Robinson, secretary of the group said he too is very excited about this group, and wished to associate himself with the remarks of his colleagues.

In furthering the group’s goals and objectives, the group has already held discussions with the premier of the Turks and Caicos Islands, Dr Rufus Ewing, and the leader of the opposition, Sharlene Cartwright Robinson. Both see the formation of the group as positive for the Turks and Caicos. They have endorsed and pledged their support to the worthwhile efforts of the group.

During the last open meeting of the group, the entire TCI Cabinet met with the group and has also welcomed the formation of the group. They all look forward to NAG working with the government.

The National Alliance Group will be launched formally very soon.

For more information on the group, please contact the chairman at 649-231-1731 or by email at tcinag@yahoo.com

I wonder what this group will do, if the elected and representative government can not do it.

Why are we still paying the members of parliament?
