PM Browne Signs Agreement with Investment Migration Council


Prime Minister Gaston Browne used the opportunity of his attendance at the Investment Migration Council (IMC) Forum in Geneva Switzerland to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the organization.

Mr. Browne was in Geneva to participate in the annual IMC Forum, which saw all the leading stakeholders in the investment migration industry gather to analyze the state of the industry and strategize on the way forward.

As the feature speaker of the Forum, PM Browne addressed the plenary session on Wednesday afternoon with a speech that was very well received.

On Wednesday morning the Prime Minister sat with the chief executive of the Investment Migration Council Mr. Bruno L’Ecuyer at the Kempinski Hotel in downtown Geneva and they both signed the MOU that set out the mandate of the IMC to conduct research, prepare reports, lobby organizations and governments and handle communications on the issues related to the investment migration industry.

The MOU had been negotiated over the past few months between both sides and covers the IMC relationship with those countries that sign up on advocacy and policy issues.

‘The IMC is performing a critical function,’ PM Browne said, ‘and this initiative will strengthen our outreach to those whose policies can affect the industry for good or ill. We look forward to a strong collaborative relationship with the IMC that will confront the issues that challenge an industry that brings so much benefit to our countries.

The signing ceremony was witnessed by Ambassador Colin Murdoch from the Office of the Prime Minister, and Patricia Cassola of the IMC.

  1. The World Boss at work. Making Antigua and Barbuda proud as always. Salute.
    Just remember the USA is watching every one of your moves.

  2. This is great and I am proud of PM Browne. The PM knows that big countries like the US, EU, etc. are going to try to bully small nations like Antigua, St. Kitts, and Dominica even more in the future. Being a member of the IMC is important as it is an organization that can help argue for our views globally.

    I think Antigua’s CIP program is great and I fully support it. Having people immigrate to Antigua that have unique backgrounds, entrepreneurial flare, and who are willing to risk their money (and reputations) by investing in our island-nation deserve our full support and warm welcome.

  3. CIP is great for the infrastructure, of Antigua yes but how does this dea benefit the people of Antigua, take for instance as an Antiguan traveling to these countries, they still treat you like shit, so in my opinion it’s only beneficial on one end, which is them coming into Antigua to invest but antiguans can’t even go to these countries and own a coffee shop.
