Also on the agenda for discussion will be inward investment, tourism and agriculture.

Senator Freddie Cohen, assistant chief minister, said: "I am very much looking forward to welcoming the prime minister and high commissioner.

"We will be delighted if our experience in areas such as tourism, agriculture and financial regulation can assist the government of St Kitts and Nevis to develop in these areas."
