Cham­ber Lun­cheon to Ad­dress CIP

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

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.
