Uglobal, a leading international immigration magazine, held a two-day virtual expo for markets in Russian and South Africa. The online event offered high-quality education from industry leaders on August 19th and 20th and gathered global immigration professionals from citizenship and residency programmes around the world. Attendees joined from Australia, Cyprus, the Caribbean, Malta, Greece, New Zealand, Portugal, and the United Kingdom.
The conference featured interactive panels moderated by experienced investment immigration professionals, as well as in-depth workshops designed specifically for attorneys, migration agents, and project developers. High-net-worth individuals, foreign intermediaries, wealth managers, migration agents, real estate developers, immigration attorneys and global investment immigration service providers also formed the event network list.
The first panel was titled “Considering a second Citizenship or Residency: Where to start, What factor you need to consider, and Professionals you should consult. A guide from A to Z.” CS Global Partners’ business development manager, Inga Wellings, said that Dominica and St Kitts and Nevis’ triumphs were a testimony to their commitment to ensuring those Programmes remain highly competitive and robust. “Factors to consider when choosing your Plan B option are safety, security, and political stability. Caribbean CBI Programmes offer this and have stood the test of time, “she said.
The second panel was called “Island Life: A Tour of the Caribbean Citizenship by Investment Programs. Quality of Life. Education opportunities. Are all created equal.” His Excellency Ambassador Emmanuel Nanthan, the Head of Dominica’s Citizenship by Investment Unit and Les Khan, the Head of St Kitts and Nevis’ Citizenship by Investment Unit, were invited to speak.
Ambassador Nanthan said: “[We] want to ensure that our clients, agents, and partners are safe and protected and [that] we don’t take any unnecessary risks. We shall move forward healthy and stronger to build international business together. We urge you to really and truly protect yourself and your families. You are important, the business is you, it’s a human thing, and we want to ensure we provide a human service with human care and touch.”
“Our reaction to a global challenge is to ensure that we keep the family together. What I believe is important is that we, as a global industry, keep the faith and keep strong and united as international global migration family,” he added.
Mr Khan said: “We need to make sure that our programmes are robust, that going forward we have the proper due diligence and controls as needed – we cannot compromise with that,” he noted at the conference.
