The smallest island in the Western Hemisphere, St Kitts and Nevis is becoming a fascinating location to visit in the Caribbean region. The month of July gives a more considerable reason to travel to the beautiful island of Nevis as it will be celebrating the ‘Mango Festival’ from July 1. The twin-island nation is known as the ‘Mango Capital in the Caribbean’ as mangoes are the most loved fruit in Nevis.
The Mango Festival is celebrated annually in the Nevis for an entire week, with significant events happening from July 1 to July 3, 2022, onwards.
This year the Mango Festival will be launched officially on July 1 at Cades Bay Fruit Orchard from 1 pm onwards. On July 2, from 12 pm onwards, the visitors will see an easy-breezy mango Saturday in Nevis. On the last day, i.e. July 3, the citizens of St Kitts and Nevis will enjoy the love of mangoes at the Malcolm Guishard Recreational Park, which will include a Chef’s Cooking Competition (St Kitts and Nevis), a Food Demonstration, Mango Wellness Zone and Mango 101 Zone.
There will also be different contests where the audience will engage themselves, like mango eating and a cocktail competition. Furthermore, there will also be a culinary challenge that will bring the top chefs of the island to prepare mango-focus menus. Indeed, it will be all about the mangoes.
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.
