The Antigua and Barbuda Government has stepped up its efforts to stave off the European Union (EU) and to derail the controversial Citizenship by Investment (CBI) programme.
Prime Minister Gaston Browne has indicated that he has sent a letter to the EU on the matter which would provide evidence that Antigua and Barbuda holds the most robust due diligence process before citizenship can be granted.
Under the CBI, foreign investors are afforded citizenship of a country in return for making a significant investment.
Apart from Antigua and Barbuda, the other Caribbean countries with a CBI programme are St Lucia, Grenada, Dominica and St Kitts and Nevis.
