(Grenada Now) Grenada is one of the Eastern Caribbean islands with the Citizenship by Investment (CBI) programmes that are effectively using the Joint Regional Communications Centre (JRCC) due diligence facility to investigate applicants to its programme.
“Grenada is doing a good job. Grenada is using it more than some of the others,” US Ambassador to the OECS, Linda Taglialatela, said in a recent interview while on an official visit to the island.
Explaining that the USA through its embassy in Barbados has working arrangements with the islands which offer CBI programmes as an avenue for raising revenue, she said that the Joint Regional Communications Centre in Barbados is the hub for due diligence probing.
“We have working arrangements with the 5 islands in the eastern Caribbean which have an arrangement for due diligence through the JRCC,” said the ambassador who pointed out that all applications in each of the island should be vetted by the JRCC.
