CBI Monies Partially Funded Nevis Development

Foreign direct investment earned through the Citizenship by Investment (CBI) program allows Saint Kitts and Nevis to develop projects and keep the islands running. The Nevis Island Administration (NIA), for example, has used the money received to fund various projects that have benefited the island's residents and citizens.

Hon. Premier Mark Brantley, Minister of Finance in the NIA in a recent interview told what exactly the money was spent on: “Offhand, just from my mind- the Mondo Track; we have the brand new Newcastle Police Station; we have the water taxi pier at Oualie which in my view has been a monumental investment in so far as the water taxi business is concerned, which by the way remains 100 percent Nevisian-owned at this point; we have the CCTV centre that has gone up; we had works that were done on various roads all around Nevis; we have the new Treasury Building in Charlestown which was a significant investment; we have generators up at NEVLEC- one of those Wärtsilä generators costs over US $5 million…and the expansion of the Alexandra Hospital".

Some of the CBI funds were used to service the NIA's payroll to ensure that government employees and retirees receive timely and full pay, especially during the COVID-19 island's economic lockdown.
