Passport

The economy of St. Kitts & Nevis traditionally lied within the sugar cane industry, however tourism, manufacturing, salt mining, and offshore banking have replaced a large percentage of the overall economy. Although 39% of the total land area is devoted to crops (the two primary crops are sugar cane and peanuts), the vast majority of produce and poultry is required to be imported along with key energy resources such as natural gas and oil. Local harvests of sweet potatoes, onions, tomatoes, cabbage, carrots, and fish help supply the community, but the demand for agricultural products and common staple goods require scheduled imports from the U.S and Canada. St. Kitts and Nevis is a member of the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union (ECCU), the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB), and the Eastern Caribbean Telecommunications (ECTEL) Authority. Asset Protection Services International offers Citizenship by Investment programs as well as incorporation services for Business Companies, Foundations, International Exempt Trusts and Limited Liability Companies in the jurisdiction of St Kitts and Nevis.

Coat of Arms

The islands of St. Kitts & Nevis were alleged to have been first spotted by Christopher columbus in 1493. In time the islands became known to ship captains for their fresh water, fertile soil, and large salt deposits. In 1624 the colony of Saint Christopher became the first English colony in the Caribbean. One year later the French joined the English colony in an attempt to out-populate the local Kalinago, whom had grown suspicious of the foreign presence. Such suspicion proved accurate as the combined English and French forces committed genocide murdering over 2,000 Kalinago men. Their bodies were dumped into a river where the blood was said to flow for days giving rise to the name "Bloody River". The few remaining Kalinago Indians were then deported. The islands remained a strategic military outpost for centuries and a central location of slave labor to harvest tobacco, sugar cane and salt. The French, English and Spanish fought over control of the islands until the Treaty of Ultrecht was signed in 1713, which ceded St. Kitts to the British in perpetuity.
