Basseterre: St Kitts and Nevis is emerging as a fascinating destination for tourists, and it is one must-visit in the Caribbean region. As July is coming, it has come with a great reason to travel to this marvellous country as the island of Nevis is celebrating the “Mango Festival”. It is the most loved fruit in Nevis and is known as the “Mango Capital in the Caribbean.”
Each year, the Mango Festival is celebrated for an entire week, with significant events occurring from July 1 to July 3, 2022.
This year’s Mango Festival will officially launch at Cades Bay Fruit Orchard from 1 pm onwards on July 1. On the next day, from 12 noon on July 2, Nevis will glimpse an easy-breezy mango Saturday.
On a concluding day (July 3), the Nevisians and Kittitians will enjoy the love of mangoes at Malcolm Guishard Recreational Park, which will include a Food Demonstration, Chef’s Cooking Competition (St Kitts and Nevis), Mango Wellness Zone, and Mango 101 Zone.
Devon Liburd, the Nevis Tourism Authority’s interim CEO, proudly stated, “Mangoes are an integral part of the Nevisian cuisine as many different species are grown here. Each variety is known for its unique look, taste and texture. Every Nevisian believes the Mango Festival is the perfect way to experience a Caribbean vacation with a distinctively Nevisian flavour.”
The love for this fruit might be proved by every Nevisian who has at least a mango tree in their backyard. Every summer, Nevis literally witnesses the rain of mangoes, and there are over forty-four different kinds available in Nevis, with Amory Polly, Julie and Long being the most popular among locals as well as travellers.
Since the downfall of the sugar mills in the late 1930s, the small island country has relied on tourism for financial assistance. The Federation is also known as one of the best nations which provides economic citizenship. It offers the world’s best Citizenship by Investment (CBI) Programme, as per the CBI Index published by the Financial Times’ PWM magazine. St Kitts and Nevis has been ranked first for “Citizenship Timeline”, “Due Diligence”, and “Family” in the Index.
The smallest country in the Western Hemisphere launched the economic citizenship programme in 1984 and is a pioneer of the industry. The CBI Programme provides alternative citizenship to investors, across the globe, in exchange for the financial contribution to the economy of the country.
The CBI Programme of St Kitts and Nevis has been providing alternative citizenship for more than three decades and has been regarded as the longest-running in the world. The programme guarantees platinum standards with increased mobility, sustainable investment opportunities and greater economic freedom for successful applicants.
Some of the key benefits offered by the Programme of St Kitts and Nevis are as follows:
- Open routes to a global market
- Opportunity to become a global citizen
- Enables to add additional dependents under one application
- Offers numerous business opportunities
- Diversify your portfolio
- An efficient platform for wealth planning
The CBI Programme has been praised for its stringent as well as vigorous due-diligence background checks, which are carried out by third-party firms. The agencies conduct multi-layered background checks; analysing applications, documents, character, source of income and many others. The government of St Kitts and Nevis has hired one of the world’s best independent firms. The background checks help maintain the integrity of the programme and also ensure national and international security.
