Prime Minister Dr. Timothy Harris is leading a delegation to Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE) for an investment immigration summit that begins on Tuesday.
A government statement said that the summit will be attended by representatives of several Caribbean countries with citizens by investment programmes (CBI) such as Dominica and Antigua and Barbuda.
“Moving across the globe, discussions will explore the increasing popularity of countries such as Panama and Thailand along with some of the special residency programmes granted to non-EU nationals in countries as France, Luxemburg, Spain, Portugal, Cyprus and Malta.
Exciting new programmes such as that which are being introduced for St. Lucia will be explored along with some of the more established programmes being offered in Dominica, St Kitts and Nevis, Antigua and Barbuda, the US, Canada and the UK,” said Carly Greene, the director of the second annual Investment Immigration Summit.
Basseterre has reformed its CBI programme and Prime Minister Harris said that he is confident that these changes will assist in launching the programme into a progressive and prosperous future.
