    ATTRACT GLOBAL CITIZENS

    Increase direct foreign investments in your country

“… Cooperation, Solidarity and Innovation are the only answers. This is why, Global Citizenship is so important, underpinned by a sense of common belonging, shared purpose and social justice.” – Mrs. Irina Bokova, Director-General, Unesco

Global Citizenship for Governments

Governments realize that high net worth individuals bring combined benefit for every economy. They create jobs and open businesses, they develop or utilize existing infrastructure, they pay taxes and make social contributions, which boost the local economy and have their share in the GDP growth. At the same time, future global citizens are a powerful source for exchange of successful business practices, know-how, ideas for sustainable development, and much more. Governments are seeking to attract high net worth individuals for all of the above reasons. And one such means is to introduce or optimize adequate legislative mechanisms that offer local incentives and benefits, such a residency or citizenship.
Globalization and global migration of people, economy and capital has changed the perception of citizenship as a pure national identity and the world is increasingly becoming a one global village.
