St Kitts and Nevis has shown a projected growth of 4.5 percent due to the country’s Citizenship by Investment Programme indicated by the latest International Monetary Fund (IMF) report that was released in January 2023. This growth is supported by a steady recovery from the tourism sector and various service sectors.
The current St Kitts-Nevis Labour Administration Party under the leadership of Prime Minister, Dr Terrance Drew, has made very well-considered changes to the country’s investment migration programme in attempts to transform the economy into a Sustainable Island State, as highlighted in the 2023 Budget Address.
The expected growth in St Kitts and Nevis’ real GDP is 5.9 percent for 2023. The Prime Minister highlighted that the Citizenship by Investment Programme is also designed to generate significant revenue to create a diverse economy that will promote entrepreneurship, profitable job creation and increase homeownership.
Citizenship by Investment will invite top-notch investors
Prime Minister Drew, said that his administration would “use the CBI revenues to fuel our plans to implement a diversified economy”.
The Prime Minister emphasised the significance and benefits of St Kitts and Nevis’ CBI Programme and the importance of due diligence in ensuring that the country’s programme remains reputable globally.
He added “Our citizenship is precious; therefore, the evolved CBI Programme will invite bold and creative top-notch investors to our shores who will develop innovative industries in St Kitts and Nevis, the construction of 18 real estate developments pursuant to our government’s priority infrastructure list, and in all things, bring substantial benefit to the people of Saint Christopher and Nevis. This evolution is perfect for our investors to explore real estate development opportunities through their CBI Programme.”
St Kitts and Nevis government is looking to develop a Sovereign Wealth Fund should their financial projections materialise. This will be the world’s first Sovereign Wealth Fund through the Citizenship by Investment Programme.
The Fund will be used as a long-term investment vehicle in international markets and industries and will be managed by high-level authorities and a thorough policy to ensure the funds are directed intentionally towards disaster management.
Investors will have the opportunity to improve the country’s healthcare system, and social services, develop public infrastructure including energy and water security for all the Kittitian and Nevisian population, as well as digital transformation.
