UPP Embarks on Diaspora Connect Roadshow to Secure Credible Investment Opportunities

36

In the countdown to the general elections in Antigua and Barbuda which are constitutionally due by March 2023, the Opposition United Progressive Party (UPP), has embarked on a tour of the Antiguan and Barbudan Diaspora in the United States.

A delegation comprising Political Leader Harold Lovell, Deputy Political Leader Jamale Pringle and four candidates will lead this initiative, as part of an investment and nation building campaign to create jobs through strategic investment.

The theme of this initiative is “Partnership for Investment and Nation Building.” The first leg of the tour, slated for September 28 – October 3, will make stops in Florida, Georgia and New York, the three main regions of the United States where most Antiguan and Barbudan nationals reside.

The UPP will appeal to thousands in the Diaspora who claim Antiguan and Barbudan ancestry, as well as others who feel linked to the country by friendship, business, education, interest or affinity.

“The UPP regards the Diaspora as a key stakeholder in the development of our nation,” said Lovell. “Typically, the Government pursues foreign direct investment (FDI) via credible investors for some of its larger capital projects. But as part of our development strategy, the UPP will empower Antiguans and Barbudans in the Diaspora who have the means – and the interest – to invest in their country of ancestry.”

In addition to engaging nationals who are interested in the investment landscape, the Political Leader wants to engage them in national conversations.

Many UPP plans and programs will also affect those who have an interest in returning home or establishing a second home.

Lovell is expected to make several announcements about a structure to facilitate Diaspora Direct Investments (DDI), as well as special investment packages.

Lovell will also appeal to Diasporans to become ambassadors and to encourage their own extensive networks of family, friends and business colleagues to invest or engage in nation building initiatives.

A UPP government will launch the Linking Experts and Advocates in the Diaspora (LEAD) project to engage highly qualified experts, professionals and advocates, and to tap into their skills and expertise.

The Political Leader will also identify and engage with key influencer groups across the US, that have Antiguan and Barbudan connections – including business networks, cultural and sporting associations, and community groups – encouraging them to invest.

The UPP delegation will participate in a series of press briefings and interviews with representatives from the broadcast, digital and print media.

    • @ Well well well

      They should have asked for more…….ABLP has already charged ALL ANTIGUANS $540,000,000 TO ALL ANTIGUANS TWICE, so what is US$200 OR US$100 compared to $540,000,000?

    • Sandy Island loaded with UPP investors 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 October the “MAGIC MONTH” 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣

      Dominican Republic trip to check de spanny chicks dem 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣

      • @ UPP’s…………….

        Just like ABLP had load of investors: 26 x 26 x 26 x 26 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    • @ Just Saying

      Just like the 26 failed investors with their investments that did not exist during the 8 years of ABLP.

  1. Harold loveLIE just turned 67 on Tuesday. With little exercise and a SEDENTARY LIFESTYLE can his HEART manage the demands of travelling and begging people for money and photo op?

    Rag-Tag Jackie said doctors warned her to take it easy or the bubby cancer could return. Harold loveLIE need to consider his HEART health

  2. @ Hmmmmmmmmm

    be careful of KARMA…….do not wish sickness on ANYONE………..

    …..YOU COULD DIE BEFORE THEM!!!! HOW STUPID AND LOW CAN YOU ABLP MINIONS GET??????
    GET RID A DEM

  3. Win! Lose! Draw!

    UPP please bring those investments, forthwith!

    STOP treating the People like BASTARDS too!
    They know the difference as to who are the whores and what they’re doing?

  4. Good move Mr Harold Lovell sir, this is a great move to attract the Antiguan diaspora from abroad to invest at home.

    As you know, if as expected, the upp do win the next General Election, the ABLP will make sure that there’ll be no money left for you to move the forward – why would he. He’s a Nasty and vindictive man.

    HE’D RATHER HURT YOU, AND AT A COST TO THE COUNTRY, SO THAT HE CAN SAY … “I TOLD YOU SO!

    Keep building up your allies from abroad, especially the financially astute ones.

    One caution though, please do not make promises to the diaspora like Gaston “Gassy” Browne did in October 2014 when he made his grand promises when visiting the UK.

    That was an early indication of his false and misleading promises.

    • @ SMH

      Choksi and YIDA gone too for ABLP, so who will they depend on?????

      THE ONLY WAY ABLP CAN WIN AN ELECTION IN ANTIGUA IS THROUGH HAND OUTS – ASOT AND GASTON HAD SAID SO, AND THAT IS THE ONLY REASON WHY THEY LOST IN 2004 AND 2009 BECAUSE THEIR COFFERS WERE DRY!!!!
      THEY CANNOT WIN ON MERIT!!!
      USEFUL IDIOTS
      GET RID A DEM

  5. Fundraising is common here in America. All Parties do it on a regular basis. What’s the big deal. Didn’t Gaston Browne admit that he got money from YIDA? We’re still waiting for the $2billion dollar investment.

  6. People remember the UPP under Harold Lovell brough his friend Dr. Perry who was heading a large investment group to develop Half Moon Bay. What happened to them? No money after all. All Bluff.

    • My goodness boss, how far do you want to go back?

      How about we go back to Lester Bird’s time in office? Now there’s a can of worms that no-one wants to talk about or address to this day.

      Let’s keep our politics relevant to today please @ From The Sideline.

      REMEMBER, YOUR BELOVED GASTON “SELF-ENRICHMENT” BROWNE HAS BEEN IN OFFICE FOR 2 TERMS, NOT 2 WEEKS. TARL!

      • Didn’t your own future PM in waiting Harold Lovell said, the best way to determine a man’s future performance is to look at his past performance. And it is always good to look at the past in order to know what to do about the future. Black people should never forget their past. Listen to Bob Marley when he sings, ‘ don’t forget your history’. A man without knowing his history is like a tree without roots.

        • @ From The Sideline, there you go again going off on a useless tangent and not addressing the fact that Gaston ” Two Terms” Browne hasn’t completed the vital tasks he promised to do for the country.

          GREAT DEFLECTION THOUGH BY BRINGING UP A JAMAICAN 🇯🇲 SINGER INSTEAD OF RESPONDING TO THE CONCERNS OF ANTIGUAN CITIZENS … 👏

    • @ From The Sideline

      Like The YIDA who deceived the highly intelligent ABLP, what fools!!!

      For that incompetence alone they should not be voted back into power!!!!! And then talk about the candidates in the UPP- with all their intelligence and degrees, they were taken for a ride–where is the promised $2 billion project? US$2,000,000,000…..LOOK A ‘NOUGHT’….ALL ABLP TRADES IN IS ‘000,000,000’, like the $540,000,000 taken out in secret for poor Antiguans to pay back.
      THE DESPERATION OF THIS GOVERNMENT, IT BEGGARS BELIEF!!
      GET RID A DEM

      • @Tangled Web..- Yida spent over 100 million usd in Antigua (60 million alone went to pay for the lands held by the Stanford liquidator) vs Lovell and crew getting us deeper into debt. Seems you forget the over 30 million USD in interest alone due to the UPP reckless handling of the HMB matter. Then there was the Wadadli power plant, another 30 million usd wasted

        • @ tellhim

          ‘TELLME ‘ ABOUT THE 26 GROUND FAKINGS THAT YOUR ESTEEMED LEADER LESTER BIRD CHASTISED YOU FOR. IT IS YOUR OWN PEOPLE CALLING YOU OUT. JUST KEEP LIE, LIE, LIE, LIE, LIE, LIE TO ANTIGUA PEOPLE.
          THE COUNTRY HAS NEVER BEEN IN SUCH A STATE…NOT UNDER VC, NOT UNDER LESTER, NOR BALDWIN…..PEOPLE HUNGRY LIKE HELL, POINT PEOPLE A CRY, I CANNOT EVEN WALK IN POINT NOR VILLA 50 YARDS WITHOUT A YOUNG MAN OR WOMAN BEGGING ME A $5, THINGS SO HARD, PEOPLE CANNOT EVEN BUY BREAD IN THIS ECONOMIC POOR HOUSE, WHAT A DISASTER THIS ABLP EXPERIMENT HAS BEEN, PEOPLE BELLY A BUN DEM, NOT EVEN WATA FOR WASH DEM KIN, JUST PAIN AND STARVATION AND MISERY IN THE ISLAND, NOT TO MENTION THE POOR PENSIONERS, THE AMOUNT OF SUICIDES UNDER THIS ADMINISTRATION-GOD FORBID IF THEY ARE RETURNED.
          HELL TO THE NO. UP WITH THIS WE WILL NOT PUT!!

        • And you don’t even add the amount of money YIDA spent building infrastructure and some factories. Plenty containers landed here. Over US$200milliom invested so far.

      • Even Tabor doesn’t speak any more about the $540million or US$200million. He claims it was in the budget so they may have gotten it. That is the stupidity of the UPP. Something in the budget they assumed was actual money. Well don’t they Covid mash up the entire budget. What an inept set of people that want to run our country. And their minions just repeat everything they say. Like blind mice.

    • “Dr. Perry” was actually Perry Mason from the TV series 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣

      • @Where is the GUN that SHERFIELD… They tried to get him to revive the dead. Watch them at first try to stymie the acquisition . Claim LB was stealing HMB land. They then after dithering for a few years moved ahead and acquired. They then dithered again for at least 2 years re the valuation. The interest clock was running, but they acted as if they had all the time in the world. We then saw what is well known to happen when you procrastinate: “Proverbs 10:4
        4 Lazy hands make for poverty, but diligent hands bring wealth.” Gaston Browne admin is about diligent hands

        • @tenman Yes typical UPP style. They can never get anything done!!!

  7. Still remember the last town hall meeting where a overseas national asked if central government would provide funding to overseas nationals, in order to help them get housing in Antigua. Hope Lovell don’t offer them his usual bounce cheque

    • @ loveugly

      MAYBE CHET CAN HELP OUT LOVELL……….HIS EXPERIENCE OF BOUNCED CHEQUES IS SECOND TO NONE!!!!!
      ☹️☹️

      THE SAD THING ABOUT YOU USEFUL IDIOTS IS YOU DO NOT HAVE ANY SHAME. THE SAME THING YOU ACCUSE THE OPPOSITION OF IS THE SAME THINGS YOU HAVE DONE AND WORSE….THAT SHOWS YOU HAVE NOTHING TO CAMPAIGN ON, NO IDEAS, NO PLANS, JUST MALIGNING.
      CONTINUE WORKING FOR SUPPER, BECAUSE YOU CAN SENSE THE DESPERATION IN ALL THE PAID MINIONS, LIKE THEY ARE WORRYING HOW THEY ARE GOING TO PAY THEIR BILLS AFTER MARCH 2023 BECAUSE NEITHER THE FARM NOR THE RADIO STATION CAN EMPLOY THEM ALL.
      PLUS KNOWING HOW MUCH DIS MAN LUB MONEY HE GO TUN HE BACK PAN AR U, BECAUSE HE WILL HAVE NO FURTHER USE FOR YOU TURN COATS, AS HE SAID, U GUYS NEED TO BE RINSED, LOL

  8. A brilliant idea very creative marketing strategies, the gastonites are supporting for supper not for nation building. 2 terms is enough we tired of the greed, corruption, high crime rate and poverty. A curse nation if he continue to be in power.

    • What we see is high petty crime. Under the UPP all we saw were women rape in their homes and woman shot in the head at broad day light at Heritage Quay. But crime is crime and we should stamp it all out.

  9. Ah ha ha ha ha ha YOU LABOUR PARTY SUPPORTERS ALMOST SOUND LIKE YOU BELIEVE THE RUBBISH YOU TALKING.
    JUDGE WHO IS IN AND THERE IS A GUILTY VERDICT.

    AH AR YOU FLAP

  10. yes even a certain Parliament official was brutally RAPED in her golden years during the “Sunshine Government” period.

  11. King Lyadd Lovell Limpy Joe promised that Serena and Venus were going yo build a hotel too 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣
