“The people of Nevis and the people of St Kitts and Nevis in the wider context, would be pleased to know that my trip here has garnered tremendous attention from the local press in Hong Kong.
“We have now been featured in three newspapers today. I was particularly pleased that a major, major piece was done on my trip and on St Kitts and Nevis, and Nevis more specifically, on investment opportunities available there. We now have seen three newspapers carry pieces on the trip thus far. I meet with some 300 or so investors in Beijing on Wednesday and thereafter, another 300 or so in Shanghai on Friday and then I return home on the weekend,” he said.
Brantley also noted his expectations that would come for Nevis as a result of his meetings with interested investors.
“The trip thus far has been very interesting but not just interesting, I think potentially very rewarding and I am very heartened at the appetite of the Chinese, to invest outside China and specifically to invest in the Caribbean and in St Kitts and Nevis in particular.
“So I believe that this trip has been useful and we expect that we will see some reward flowing from it for the good people of Nevis and St Kitts and Nevis in the wider context,” he said.
In conclusion, Brantley stated that his visit to Hong Kong was part of the Nevis Island Administration’s (NIA) continued thrust to actively draw investors to the island.
