CHARLESTOWN, Nevis - Nevis’ Premier, Honourable Mark Brantley says that his island is opened to all investors looking to travel for the 2018 Caribbean Investment Summit.
The 2018 Caribbean Investment Summit, slated to be held in St. Kitts and Nevis from May 16-19, will tackle issues facing islands providing Citizenship by Investment.
Topics up for discussions include Transparency versus Confidentiality: The Democracy of Information Sharing, Hurricane-Proof Banking: Protecting Against External Impacts and Embracing New Technology for Better CIPs.
Additionally, the Summit will provide investors from across Europe, Asia and the Caribbean with an opportunity to see what St. Kitts and Nevis has to offer during their tours of the islands.
Brantley disclosed that Nevis has investment opportunities available across several areas including infrastructure, agriculture and land and property development – villa sectors.
“We here in Nevis are encouraging people to come out. We are encouraging people to come out and see the opportunities that are available on both islands,” he noted.
With the potential for investment available, the Premier said the Summit will be a great opportunity for the islands.
With St. Kitts and Nevis being the pioneers in the Citizenship by Investment (CBI) programme, that initiative has benefited all sectors both on Nevis and in St. Kitts.
According to Brantley, the CBI has created jobs, benefited the social services sector, infrastructure, agriculture sector amongst others.
One of the biggest areas of benefit for the federation is the hotel sector and according to Brantley, that has allowed for large-scale employment as is seen in the case of Park Hyatt.
“When we look at the Park Hyatt in St. Kitts, Koi, and Kittitian Hill, we have seen all of it recently evolved and revolved around the Citizenship by Investment. So, the truth is that employment at Park Hyatt right now is as a result of investment through the Citizenship by Investment programme.”
The federation’s CBI programme is one which is targeted towards investors who are reputable and will pass the necessary vetting procedures.
“We want people to come who have the necessary credentials; people who come to help us to develop the country and can pass the very rigorous due diligence process,” he said.
Premier Brantley said that St. Kitts and Nevis is the best place to invest and reiterated his call for investors to be present at the 2018 Caribbean Investment Summit.
The event is sponsored by amongst others, Caribbean Galaxy Real Estate, Bluemina Citizenship and Immigration, Bitcoin.com, BDO, S-RM, Apex Capital, Christophe Harbour, Exiger, Joseph Rowe Law and PassPro.
