How do citizenship by investment programs affect member countries?

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) noted the positive impact of Citizenship by Investment Programs (CIP) on the socio-economic structure of participating countries. The Fund continues to recognize this program as a significant source of revenue and welcomes the program to help reduce public debt, as well as its contribution to the country's gross domestic product.

From the first days, CIP has been the center of many discussions because developed countries have discussed how reasonable such programs are. Negative global influences can restrain potential investors and create lost economic opportunities for participating countries. When positive countermeasures are taken by organizations that are as prestigious as the IMF, this encourages CIP member countries.

The head of CIP in Saint Lucia and Chairman of the Citizenship by Investment Programs Association (CIPA), Nestor Alfred, supports IMF statements and seeks to ensure the sustainability of the program to create positive guarantees for developed countries.

Timothy Antoine, Manager of the East Central Banks (ECCB), calls for the unity of the CIP countries as an attempt to strengthen the product of the CIP region. There are currently five CIP countries - Antigua and Barbuda, the Commonwealth of Dominica, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia and Grenada. According to Antoine, the region should be considered as one brand, despite the fact that individual countries do.
