Saint Lucia has established a task force to consider the introduction of a citizenship by investment program.
St Lucia's Governor General, Pearlette Louisy, said: "The time has arrived for us to examine the case for defining and broadening the framework under which citizenship might be offered as part of investing in Saint Lucia – and if we should think that it is a viable option, then under what circumstances we should do so. It is my Government's hope that this matter will be addressed with urgency during the current parliamentary year."
The task force will be chaired by former St Lucia Prime Minister Vaughan Lewis and is expected to submit its findings by December 1, 2014.
