In 2006, the NIPI started outreach to Vincentians in the diaspora. The first such presentation was held with Vincentians living in Bermuda. The meeting was a success, with the Commissioner of Police in Bermuda (Vincentian) George Jackson commenting that “The delegation…truly represented the interests of SVG. The investment opportunities presentation made was first class and I can assure you that it has provoked discussion amongst us as we are exploring some of the opportunities presented to us. I have also shared the information with some colleagues at work who have expressed interest”.

The NIPI has already set out its promotional objectives for 2007. Among them is a proposal for an inward mission for the international press to inform them about matters relating to investment in St Vincent and the Grenadines including the investment climate and the investment opportunities in the focus sectors.
