Antiguan Scholar Wants Capital Flow

Dr Issac NewtonAntiguan-born scholar Dr Issac Newton has called on Caribbean leaders to encourage, embrace, and affirm a flow of capital that is positive, sustainable, and healthy for the region.

His advice came as he geared up to deliver the keynote address to delegates at Invest Caribbean Now 2014, (ICN), the biggest global investment summit on the Caribbean outside of the region, set for the Harvard Club in New York City on June 4.

Dr Newton, in a preview of his speech at ICN, said regional leaders must create the right mix of incentives to attract both globally reputable and Diaspora investors.

According to a release, the graduate of Princeton Theological Seminary and Columbia and Harvard universities also added that the Caribbean must become socially conscious and strive to actively participate in what he called the community enhancement agenda.

Dr Newton also encouraged businesses and government leaders to capitalize on the serious global challenges facing the Caribbean.

This year’s fourth Invest Caribbean Now summit will feature numerous global professional investors, entrepreneurs, and business leaders, including actor Malik Yoba and chairman of the billion-dollar, privately-owned Jamaican-based empire, Gordon “Butch” Stewart, among others.
