SAN JUAN – The St. Lucia government said Wednesday that it has hired two international companies to market the country’s new citizenship by investment program.
Canada’s Arton Capital and British firm CS Global Partners will be in charge of promoting the initiative in the Middle East and Asia, respectively, the government said in a statement.
The country “has taken the unique approach of licensing more than one marketing agent. This allows CIP St. Lucia to leverage the strengths of each agent,” the statement added.
In early August, lawmakers approved the bill to prepare the initiative and establish an entity to supervise the program.
In 1984, St. Kitts and Nevis became the first Caribbean territory to offer such a program, joined later by Dominica, Grenada, Antigua and Barbuda, and Turks and Caicos.
