- The Special Envoys on Investment are private individuals who have volunteered to support the country’s investment drive. The envoys are attached to different private sector organisations and may, from time to time, act in their capacity as envoys while they are travelling on company business, which is paid for by their respective firms. No personnel have been seconded to provide support to the envoys specifically.
- No public entity has made any payment to any private firm to which the envoys are affiliated for the purpose of supporting the work of the envoys in the investment drive.
