De Niro Sees Antigua & Barbuda as Hot Investment Location

Legendary actor Robert De Niro is continuing to support Antigua and Barbuda, pitching the Caribbean hotspot at an investment conference in Dubai.
De Niro was named as a special economic envoy for the twin-island nation in 2014, when he and Australian billionaire James Packer announced the Paradise Found hotel project in Barbuda.
“It’s a beautiful place, that’s why I’m involved in this project,” he said during a press conference at the Palazzo Versace in Dubai, joined by the nation’s Prime Minister, Gaston Browne.
Expected to cost around US$250 million, the Paradise Found project will begin construction in early 2017.
