Global Residence &Citizenship firm Henley & Partnersrank Dominica’s CBI program as 5th in the Caribbean
Leading Global Residence & Citizenship planning firm Henley & Partners has ranked Dominica’s CBI program as fifth in the Caribbean.
The company recently released its Quality of Nationality Index for 2017 which ranks the quality of nationalities worldwide based on both internal and external factors. Antigua and Barbuda’s program ranked number one, followed by St. Kitts in second place.
St. Lucia ranked first, Grenada ranked fourth and Dominica occupied the fifth place position. The report stated that the programs in Dominic and Grenada continue to show a slight improvement in value in 2017.
“Thus, the nationality of Dominica scored 38.5% on the 2017 General Ranking, 0.3% more than in the previous year, and the Grenadian nationality scored 39.4%, 0.5% more than in the previous year,” it said.
Henley & Partners has said its Quality of Nationality Index is a comprehensive ranking system that measures nationalities by a set of clear and transparent criteria. The firm said it ensures a high level of reliability by using a wide variety of strictly quantifiable data to gauge the opportunities and limitations that nationalities impose on citizens.
However, reports by the firm have not always been welcomed.
In 2016 Founder and President of Apex Capital Partner (a Dominica CBI agent), Nuri Katz, trashed a report by Henley & Partners which ranked Dominica CBI as last in the world.
Katz, who was recently named Dominica’s resident ambassador to Russia, said the firm was simply promoting its products since it was agents of countries like Antigua which continues to get high rankings.

An unidentified woman was killed and about six people were injured in a crash on Mandela Highway in Jamaica
An unidentified woman was killed and about six people were injured in a crash on Mandela Highway
A man who claimed to have witnessed yesterday's crash said one motorist heading to Kingston was in the process of overtaking another vehicle when it hit the back of a garbage truck that was going in the same direction. The out-of-control vehicle then spun around and hit the one it was attempting to overtake.
Both vehicles, the man claimed, then hit the concrete barrier before slamming into a hearse and another vehicle. Head of the Police Traffic and Highway Division Superintendent Courtney Coubrie said the accident, which happened about 2:00 pm, took place on the newly built stretch of Mandela Highway, which is being upgraded to accommodate six lanes of traffic.
Coubrie, who was unable to state what could have caused the accident, said the unidentified woman was thrown from the vehicle and died on the spot.
“Don't be distracted when you driving that stretch of road. Look steadfast ahead of you and drive carefully until you clear that stretch. I believe distraction has a lot to do with some of these things,” he said, adding that some motorists travel at excessive speeds, especially on the west-bound side of the dual carriageway. “Cut your speed considerably when approaching that area,” Coubrie pleaded.
Missiles hit some military sites in northern Syria Sunday night; 26 pro-government fighters, mostly Iranians, were killed
Missiles hit a number of military sites in northern Syria on Sunday night
The Syrian military said facilities in Hama and Aleppo provinces were struck.
A UK-based monitoring group said 26 pro-government fighters were killed, most of them Iranians.It is not known who was behind the attacks.Earlier this month, the US, UK and France bombed three facilities they said were associated with the Syrian government's alleged chemical weapons program.
Israel is meanwhile alleged to have hit an airbase in Homs province reportedly serving as an Iranian drone command centre and containing an advanced Iranian air defence system. Seven Iranian soldiers were among 14 military personnel killed in that attack.
sources are saying 26 pro-government fighters were killed in the strikes. Four were Syrian and the others were foreigners; a vast majority of whom were Iranians. It is also noted that the death toll might rise, as 60 fighters were wounded, some of them seriously, and several others were missing.
Sources say that given the nature of the targets, the attacks were likely to have been carried out by Israel. But Israeli Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz said that he was "not aware" of the strikes.
