The Prime Minister listed various sectors that require investment, including energy, education, pharmaceuticals, banking, real estate, tourism, fintech, agriculture, manufacturing, and blockchain, adding that Antigua and Barbuda has impressive development indices, including a low inflation rate.

In his opening remarks, Onyema urged the governments of Nigeria and Antigua and Barbuda to explore development opportunities for mutual benefits. He encouraged fellow investors to consider investing in Antigua and Barbuda, citing his own positive experience with the LIAT 2020 Airline.
