Red Flags Among Golden Passports: An Analysis of Chinese Influence In Five Caribbean Citizenship By Investment Programs
This paper explores the extent wealthy Chinese Citizenship by Investment (CBI) holders in the Caribbean use their economic clout to influence local politics. Five Caribbean countries have benefited immensely from CBI, a program that contributes as much as a third of some countries’ gross domestic product (GDP). In recent years, a growing number of wealthy individuals from China have been applying for CBI in the Caribbean. As wealthy Chinese individuals continue to move their money and citizenship to the Caribbean, their political clout may increase in the future, and the Chinese central government may be able to leverage this influential community to exert economic and political pressure in the Caribbean.
