“With effect from the next payday, public servants and pensioners in Nevis shall receive a 5 percent increase in their salaries and wages retroactive to January 01, 2022. On January 01, 2023, we shall give a further 5 percent increase to our public servants and pensioners.

“Put differently, on Nevis, our public servants and pensioners will receive salary and wage and pension increases of 15 percent compounded over the period 2022-2024. This staggered approach will enable the NIA to better manage the increases and allow for better management of the finances of the government…This represents the largest ever financial commitment to public servants and pensioners in our island’s history.”
These increases shall not be extended to Cabinet members, he said.
