From 23 September 2017 to 31 March 2018, investors will be able to get citizenship by donating $150,000 to the Hurricane Relief Fund.     READ MORE

NEW YORK, USA — Gaston Browne, prime minister of Antigua and Barbuda, told the United Nations General Assembly on Saturday September 24, 2016 that, along with climate change and lingering indebtedness, Caribbean islands face another existential threat from the withdrawal by global banks of correspondent banking relations to their financial institutions.

In the global campaign against money-laundering and terrorist financing, very strict penalties have been imposed on banks by regulatory bodies in North America and Europe for any infringement of the stringent regulations.

Jarabacoa in La Vega province in the DR.

By David Jessop

What made this special for me was that I, a visitor, stayed in a house owned by friends that was located in and above a rural community. It was magical.     Continue reading

Maduro or Guyana? Caricom’s choice

ExxonMobil plans four wells offshore Guyana next year. That will cost perhaps US$800 million.   Continue reading
