Basseterre, St. Kitts, (CUOPM) – St. Kitts and Nevis’ Prime Minister the Rt. Hon. Dr. Denzil L. Douglas has called on entrepreneurs, investors, partners and nationals to make the Federation their country of choice for business.
Dr. Douglas, who was in London last week, was at the time addressing several groups and individuals in London where he also highlighted the twin-island Federation’s many social, economic and human development achievements.
At the IBC’s International Citizenship and Residence Conference held at the London Jumeirah Carlton Towers Hotel, Prime Minister Douglas, the keynote speaker of the two-day conference, engaged over 100 representatives from across the United Kingdom and other international jurisdictions in discussions on investment and lifestyle opportunities in St. Kitts and Nevis.

Following the successful conference, Prime Minister Douglas held a series of productive individual meetings with officials and businessmen seeking to build relations with St. Kitts and Nevis.
These efforts were further enhanced during the Annual St. Kitts-Nevis Partners Reception held under his patronage at the High Commission on the 31st October 2013, where His Excellency Dr. Kevin Isaac and the Prime Minister engaged with over 100 current and potential development partners, supporters and friends of the Federation.
