He also brought attention to the many investment opportunities available in the twin-island nation, outlining these to key developers and agents, as well as a number of senior executives and investors.
The visit, part of the CIU’s international marketing initiative, allowed Mr Khan to promote both avenues for investment under the Programme: the Government’s Sugar Industry Diversification Foundation (SIDF) and investment in pre-approved real estate. He also highlighted the numerous ways in which the St Kitts and Nevis Citizenship by Investment Programme continues to uphold the platinum standard of the industry.
“I was delighted with the level of interest shown by prospective applications and agents in China. It is a clear demonstration that our reputation as a platinum CBI Programme with robust and transparent investment application processes has stood us in good stead. Our standards and processes will ensure that we attract the right number and calibre of applicants to our Programme who want to make a positive difference to the economy and quality of life of St Kitts and Nevis,” said Mr Khan.
Mr Khan had much else to proudly discuss with his audience, including St Kitts and Nevis outranking its neighbours as the best passport in the Eastern Caribbean and number 1 jurisdiction for doing business in the Eastern Caribbean.
Chinese interest in the St Kitts and Nevis Citizenship by Investment Programme has grown over the years. In stressing the importance of maintaining ties with China, Mr Khan revealed that he is expecting to attend several conferences in China with the St Kitts and Nevis Promotional Agency (SKIPA), the earliest scheduled for June.
