Welcome to the final edition of the IMC Newsletter Bulletin for 2019.
We’d like to end your year with a bang by sending you some remarkable article contributions from around the globe.
For this IMC Bulletin, we start with an academic report from Professor Matjaž Tratnik and Professor Petra Weingerl whose paper explores limitations imposed on State autonomy in matters of nationality by international law and EU law and its implications for investment migration. Yayoi Ashikaga shares her insights regarding EB-5 investor relations between Japan and the USA and Edward Beshara’s article poses an important question if all the EB-5 financing is not raised prior to the new regulations, would the project still move forward; read on to find out. An article on the importance of Due Diligence checks by Kieron Sharp and an interesting article explaining financial incentives for overseas investors by Eleni Drakou.
In addition to the articles featured in this newsletter, we would like to share some important dates with you; mark your calendar for the following:
1st Cyprus Workshop will be held on the 5th March at the Amathus Beach Resort Hotel in Limassol, Cyprus.
And, for anyone registering for the IMC Education & Training course, you can now also benefit from an additional 5% discount on the delegate price to attend the Investment Migration Forum!
On that note, Season’s Greetings, wishing you happy holidays and a new year filled with prosperity and success.
