The Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis is featured in the July/August edition of Global Citizen – a Dubai-based magazine with millions of readers in the United Arab Emirates and nearby states in the Middle East.
The 17-page article features the two islands of St. Kitts and Nevis as “an untouched paradise offering stunning beaches, lush rainforests, one of the most lovely carnivals outside of Latin America and charming traditional plantation style hotels.”
Sub-features include “Caribbean Jewels” by Natasha Tourish; “Business opportunities in St. Kitts and Nevis” by Munaf Ali, CEO of Range Hospitality; “Luxury living in St. Kitts and Nevis” by Harvard graduate and world renowned architect Bill Bensley and “Giving Back” by entrepreneur and philanthropist, Bill Liao.
The feature also highlights St. Kitts and Nevis’ culture, cuisine, diving, beaches, fauna and flora.
Photos of the white sand beaches, the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, the Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park, Four Seasons Resort and The St. Kitts Scenic Railway are printed alongside various articles.
There are also full-page ads promoting Kittitian Hill, now under construction at Belmont, St. Paul’s and the proposed Park Hyatt St. Kitts at Christopher Harbour on the South East Peninsular.
St. Kitts and Nevis’ Prime Minister the Rt. Hon. Dr. Denzil L. Douglas recently said his visit to Dubai in seeking investment opportunities for the people of the twin-island federation has been productive.
Apart from the official launch of the Park Hyatt St. Kitts at a ceremony attended by nearly 500 people, Prime Minister Douglas held extensive discussions with members of the business community from different sectors in the United Arab Emirates.
Dr. Douglas is of the view that as his government seriously examines the programme for the continuing transition of the economy and pursuit of areas for the new economic development agenda beyond the transition period, “we have been able to glean sufficient insight and stimulate sufficient interest in future investment in St. Kitts and Nevis.”
Prime Minister Douglas met with business persons from the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, China, Saudi Arabia, Russia, Afghanistan and Iraq involved in manufacturing, hotel construction, agriculture, financing and tourism.
Prime Minister Douglas in inviting them to do business in St. Kitts and Nevis urged the officials of the need to partner with local businessmen and women and give the people of the twin-island federation an opportunity to to develop and improve their quality of life.
