Nestor Alfred appointed chairman of regional CIP body
Nestor Alfred, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Saint Lucia’s CIP has been appointed as the incoming Chairman of the Citizenship by Investment Programmes Association (CIPA). Nestor replaces Les Khan, who is the CEO of Saint Kitts & Nevis Citizenship by Investment Programme.
CIPA is a regional body made up of the CIU-heads of the Caribbean’s five (5) citizenship by investment programs namely; Antigua & Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, Saint Kitts & Nevis and Saint Lucia as a means to forge closer cooperation and coordination.
Nestor believes that there is no other body that can lead the charge in fostering and maintaining the integrity of the individual island programmes than this Association to which a greater part of his Chairmanship will be directed towards doing just this. He therefore intends to work towards seeing how the CIPs within the region can collaborate in several areas such as the sharing of information which he believes will be crucial in moving forward.
It is also very important for the Association to have a voice and be able to make its representation towards the myriad of issues which now confronts the programmes within the region.
