The ABIA & Diaspora Investment Partnership Programme (DIP) was launched in 2013 with the goal of reaching out to the scores of Antiguan and Barbudan nationals living throughout the world.

The programme is especially geared towards bolstering foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows into the nation through the dedicated and targeted outreach by the Investment Promotion Department.

The Authority recognizes the Diaspora as an untapped reservoir with unlimited investment potential. The Authority has already completed a three-city North-eastern United States series of marketing plans—reaching out to the estimated 30,000 nationals residing in the US.

ABIA also plans to encompass its DIP programme to nationals throughout Europe.
