ST. KITTS, JUNE 23, 2010 (CUOPM) – St. Kitts and Nevis is wooing investors from Europe and the United Arab Emirates.
Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, Hon. Dr. Denzil L. Douglas is in Zurich, holding discussions with leading investors from Switzerland, other neighbouring European countries and the United Arab Emirates on investment opportunities in international financial services, hospitality and tourism services, telecom and energy services and real estate and construction services.
Dr. Douglas will be guest of honour at a Kittitian-Nevisian reception on Wednesday night.
In Geneva, the St. Kitts and Nevis leader will hold discussions with representatives of the Swiss Federal Government which recently gave its approval for the opening of a St. Kitts and Nevis Consulate General in Zurich.
This is expected to expand the Federation’s representation beyond Geneva where there is an Honorary Consul for the past several years.
