He was greeted by the official welcoming party, which included Premier of Nevis, Hon. Vance Amory, who in turn, introduced him to the other dignitaries assembled. This  included his honour, Deputy Governor General, Mr. Eustace John, members of the Nevis Island Assembly and leader of the opposition, Hon. Joseph Parry.
