Antigua and Barbuda is poised to host the first leg of the Caribbean Citizenship Summit slated for January 11 to 21, 2016.

The event, which will be held at Non-Such Bay Resort and South Point Development, is organized by internationally recognized immigration, citizenship and investment experts, NTL Trust Immigration, whose headquarters have been located in the region for over 20 years. The primary aim of the summit is to bring to the region, financial professionals, global entrepreneurs, investors and their families, who wish to learn more about the Citizenship Programmes available.

According to NTL Trust Immigration’s website, potential clients are expected to meet government officials, authorized agents and industry experts, participate in real estate development and historical tours, and experience firsthand the Caribbean lifestyle. Ultimately, it is an opportunity to learn about and compare all five different Caribbean Citizenship Programmes in order to make informed financial decisions. Other important topics to be presented will include security issues, international asset protection and wealth planning.

According to the acting Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Citizenship by Investment Unit (CIU), Thomas Anthony, “There isn’t a better way to entice international industry partners and participants than to bring them to this slice of paradise. I congratulate the organizers, NTL Trust Immigration and local representative, Romell Tiwari, for bringing this first industry event to the twin-island state.” Anthony says he hopes this is the first of what will become an annual event.

As one of the key speakers on the local leg, Anthony will join other prominent speakers and industry experts including the Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda, the Honorable Gaston Browne, who will expound on existing investment opportunities, application processing and stringent due diligence requirements of becoming a citizen of Antigua and Barbuda by investment.

The summit will be held here from January 11 to 12, and will include tours of qualified real estate projects; Papaya Hotel & Spa, Callaloo Cay and Tamarind Hills Developments.

The delegation will then move on to St. Kitts and Nevis, Grenada, Dominica and St. Lucia.
