Dominica’s Prime Minister Recognises Achievements, Announces New Goals for 2022 During 43rd Independence Day Address

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, November 5, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Commonwealth of Dominica celebrated 43 years of independence under the theme, ‘United in Purpose, Our Health, Our Heritage, Our Future’ on Wednesday, November 3rd. At the ceremony, Prime Minister Honourable Roosevelt Skerrit highlighted the country’s significant achievements over the last year and determined his government’s targets for 2022.

The Prime Minister also reaffirmed his commitment to building a Dynamic Dominica and invited Dominicans worldwide to join the effort. Although the island has a population of 72,000, its diaspora stands strong as hundreds of Dominican economic citizens live aboard. Through Dominica’s Citizenship by Investment (CBI) Programme, vetted foreigners and their families gain second citizenship after investing in the betterment of the country. The funds collected from CBI are used for projects in health, education, tourism and climate resilience.

“We are a unique country in several respects, with strong, stable leadership and a welcoming people,” said the Prime Minister. “As we continue to build a resilient and Dynamic Dominica, this Government is very encouraged by the level of interest being shown by individuals and companies looking for investment opportunities.”

During his address, Prime Minister Skerrit presented the following updates on national projects and initiatives, many of which are CBI sponsored:

Health:

– Six new health and wellness centres started operation this year, and six more will be opened by the first quarter of 2022.
– The construction of the state-of-the-art Marigot Hospital is now complete. It will have all the equipment and furniture in the first quarter of next year.

– Construction of two primary schools is complete, and two more primary schools are scheduled to be completed this December. The new Mahaut Primary School will be completed in the first quarter of 2022. In the new year, construction will begin on six others.

Tourism:
