St. Kitts and Nevis is hosting the NTL Caribbean Citizenship Summit 2016 this week.
Four Caribbean countries from the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) with a citizenship by investment programme are playing hosts to the summit: Antigua (January 11th-13th); St. Kitts and Nevis (January 13th-15th); Grenada (January 16th-18th); and St. Lucia (January 19th-21st).
At Wednesday’s summit, Prime Minister Dr. Timothy Harris, gave an address under the theme “New Improved St. Kitts and Nevis Citizenship by Investment Program: Progress in 2015 and plans for 2016.”
In his address, Harris outlined that the citizenship by investment programme is growing and becoming more competitive, and underscored that while he welcomes healthy competition, there must be a commitment to common and high standards with the programmes.
He also said that the citizenship by investment programme contributes 33 percent of the revenue of St. Kitts and Nevis.
