Following Dominica’s top ranking in a newly released Citizenship by Investment Index (CBI Index), Prime Minister of Dominica, Dr the Honourable Roosevelt Skeritt, has shared his thoughts on the results.
In a study launched recently by Financial Times’ Professional Wealth Management, the Programme ranked highest against the 12 other countries who provide programmes worldwide.
With a final score of 90%, and perfect results in aspects testing affordability, ease of processing, as well as due diligence, Prime Minister Skeritt commented on the results in respect to the longevity of the Programme:
“Dominica has worked tirelessly over decades to become the leader in providing citizenship by investment opportunities for high net worth individuals and their families.”
The Prime Minister also described what the programme and its high performance mean to Dominica:
“Private investment has a major role to play in mobilising and realising Dominica’s potential, so our programme has to be of the highest quality. The CBI Index results confirm that it is.”
But, the Prime Minister is not resting on the strong results of the Programme. He perceives Dominica’s CBI Programme to be a constantly evolving product, and one that must remain agile in the face of an ever-changing and sometimes uncertain political and economic environment:
“Even though the results show Dominica is the best overall choice for applicants looking to obtain a second citizenship by investment, we will continue to adapt and advance our processes, particularly with respect to our due diligence, to ensure that our programme remains robust and failproof in the face of international political and economic tensions.”
