BASSETERRE, St Kitts (CMC) – Prime Minister Dr Timothy Harris has assured the nation that he committed to the Citizen by Investment (CBI) Programme and has started to respond to the concerns of several providers in a timely manner.
According to the Prime Minister, one of the priorities pertaining to the CBI programme is to take the necessary steps to protect the programme and to reassure the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada and several other governments that St Kitts and Nevis is willing to work with them to ensure that it meets the highest level of international acceptance.
“At this time relations with the US and Canada are the two key foreign policy objectives, recalibrating relations with them is important to the maintenance of the CBI programme.”
In a release on Thursday, Harris said Senior Minister in the Federal Cabinet, Vance Amory will represent the Federation at a Citizenship by Investment Conference to be held in Dubai next week.
The Prime Minister said he has toured projects being financed under the CBI programme and met many service providers.
“We continue to do business in the Citizenship by Investment programme,” he said.“We want legitimate business and we are working diligently to restore the prestige of our CBI as the oldest and best in the world.”
