All convened in Dubai, the global epicenter of investment immigration. Grenada's Prime Minister, Dickon Mitchell, and the CEO of the CBI Unit, Thomas Anthony, graced the conference as keynote speakers and participated in specialized panel discussions. Their insights on "global residency and citizenship choices" were highly anticipated, while the Heng Sheng team added their expertise to enrich the conversations.

Prime Minister of Grenada, Hon. Dickon Mitchell, delivered a powerful keynote speech titled "Attracting Global Citizens Through Investment Migration—And Why This Is Vital for the Future.” In his address, he emphasized the essential role investment migration programs play for individuals, families, and countries offering CBI projects. He noted that such programs not only provide opportunities for acquiring citizenship but also contribute to economic growth, social development, and risk management for CBI project countries.
Prime Minister Mitchell advocated for small nation passports, underscoring that investment migration programs are not exclusive to emerging countries; many EU countries and the United States also have such programs. He stressed the importance of these programs to Grenada and highlighted their economic and social benefits.
