Prime Minister Harris will give an address at the one day seminar, which takes place today (October 19), on the topic “Citizenship-by-Investment in St. Kitts and Nevis—Past, Present and Future”.
Two other presentations from St. Kitts and Nevis at the Miami seminar include “Citizenship-by-Investment in St. Kitts and Nevis” by the Citizenship-by-Investment Unit of St. Kitts and Nevis and “Christophe Harbour: Caribbean Marina and Beach Front Living in St. Kitts” by Thomas Liepman, Director, Christophe Harbour Real Estate, St. Kitts.
Antigua and Barbuda’s Prime Minister, the Honourable Dr. Gaston Browne, will also address the global citizenship seminar under the theme “What Antigua Offers Global Citizens”.
Other topics among others include “Citizenship-by-Investment Governance, Risk and Compliance”. Presenters from Malta and Portugal among other countries are also down to address the gathering about their Citizenship-by-Investment programmes.
The Global Citizenship Seminar covers the key developments in the area of residence and citizenship planning and provides first-hand information from the industry leader, Henley and Partners.
“The seminar is designed to meet the people and ideas that drive what has become an important international trend of increasing mobility, transnational thinking, and the acceptance of multiple citizenship contributing to a more understanding, more interconnected and tolerant world,” according to Henley and Partners website.
The Team Unity Government, which was elected in February of this year, has started the drive to reform the Citizenship-by-Investment Programme which had come under scathing criticism for the way in which it was managed under the former Douglas Administration.
