Dominica Citizenship Program Background
The main reason for implementing the Dominica Economic Citizenship program was economic — it was seen as a part of the country’s development plan through which revenue generated from the citizenship program would be channeled into stagnant or struggling programs and local projects. Such as (1) building of schools, (2) renovation of the hospitals, (3) towards the promotion of the offshore sector. In the private sector, funds generate from the economic citizenship program would be directed to the tourism, agricultural or IT sectors.
It is one of the success stories of economic citizenship, outlasting several other programs and maintaining a solid reputation for integrity and credibility.
