Former Chief Immigration Officer Anette Mark has returned to her homeland of St. Vincent and the Grenadines in a new role as Executive Director of the Investment Promotions Agency.
Media reports say Mark started officially on October 16, 2017 for a three-year period.
She is said to be looking forward to this “new challenge” as she believes that the multi-island state is ready for investment – especially “in light of the fact that we now have a new international airport.”
“It’s a new challenge for me but I’ve had many new challenges before, and I have risen to the occasion at all times. I plan to do the same at Invest SVG – take my experiences from over the years, and with the help of the staff we can make something big of this!” asserted Mark.
“Invest SVG has to be more visible both internationally and locally in the services we offer and what we have achieved thus far and we must develop and find more avenues to assist our local market with exporting Vincentian products and services.”
Mark also expressed that she would like to see Invest SVG “come up with new and innovative ways” that will push the product that is St. Vincent and the Grenadines to the forefront on a regional and international level.
