Chamber Luncheon to Address CIP
As a critical follow-up to two important open discussions held in the last few weeks by the Saint Lucia Chamber of Commerce Industry and Agriculture on the much spoken-of DSH, Pearl of the Caribbean project, the Saint Lucia Chamber of Commerce will host an executive luncheon on another interesting and current subject: the Citizenship By Investment Programme, on Wednesday, March 22 at the Finance Administrative Centre.
The two aforementioned discussions demonstrated a keen interest and significant concerns among the business community with Saint Lucia’s CIP. Therefore, CIP Saint Lucia is continuing the dialogue to get feedback and clarify questions on the programme, with the help of the Chamber of Commerce.
The luncheon will permit the CIP administrators to present and explain the critical issues and changes in the Saint Lucia CIP and take questions and get feedback from the business community, albeit after the fact.
With Caribbean CIPs (Dominica, Antigua and St Kitts) now under the microscope and the rise of populism in the USA and Europe, many questions abound on the implications of the CIP for our island nation.
This luncheon will be addressed by the CEO of Saint Lucia’s Citizenship by Investment Programme, Mrs Cindy Emmanuel-McLean. Chairman of the Board Mr Ryan Devaux will also be in attendance to take questions. Members are invited to join in this most intriguing and informative luncheon. Plans are under way to organize a similar discussion in the south of the island in the not too distant future.
