Basseterre, St.Kitts (November 6th 2015):- “The St. Kitts and Nevis Citizenship-by-Investment programme is still the largest processor of applications in the region…that is what the statistics will show”, St. Kitts and Nevis Prime Minister Dr. the Hon. Timothy Harris emphatically pronounced at his recent press conference this week Tuesday.
The Prime Minister at the time was punctuating the important structural and operational reforms that have been implemented by his administration, to restore the reputation of the critically important CBI programme, since the new Team Unity government was elected to office less than nine months ago.
“Our Programme is doing legitimate business and for the record, despite all of the hue and cry about its untimely passing, the truth is, this Unit in St. Kitts and Nevis is still the largest processor of applications in the region. For the record, despite all the mouthing to the contrary, the St. Kitts and Nevis Citizenship-by-Investment programme is still the largest processor of applications in the region…that is what the statistics will show.”
Prime Minister Harris made it pellucid that the country had reached a critical juncture with regard the programme, which he said is now in a better place. “We have in our view reached a critical juncture in the CBI programme. I use the analogy of the valley of dry bones from the Book of Ezekiel…somewhere after Ezekiel we move to a better land and that is where we are now taking the programme. To a better place…a place where we have begun to regain the confidence of the world and though we are not fully out of the woods, we can breathe easy again.”
