Douglas Wattley: Timothy Harris has destroyed the St Kitts- Nevis economy; GDP dives into negative territory, says ECCB
Prime Minister Dr the Hon Timothy Harris has been accused of destroying the strong St Kitts and Nevis economy that he inherited from former Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, the Rt Hon Dr Denzil L Douglas in mid-February 2015.
Douglas Wattley, former chairman of Harris’ co-ruling People’s Labour Party (PLP) said Dr Harris plunged the economy in a recession in 2017 with the GDP registering minus two percent. “Nothing is happening in the economy. There is now evidence that Timothy Harris has pushed the economy into a recession as early as 2017,” Wattley told listeners to his popular talk show on Kyss 102.5 FM. He pointed to a graph from the St Kitts-based Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) that shows the economy registered a minus 1.98 percent in 2017.
