Dominica’s Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, is in London, England on the first leg of a four nation business trip that takes him to several parts of Asia.
The Prime Minister is leading a Dominica delegation to various international forums, convened for the promotion and marketing of Investment Immigration and various other forms of what is commonly referred to as Citizenship By Investment programmes.
At least two other Caribbean Prime Ministers and representatives of other Eastern Caribbean governments are also slated to attend and participate in some of these forums.
Following the passage of Tropical Storm Erika at the end of August, Prime Minister Skerrit made known his intention to spearhead a vigorous marketing effort of Dominica’s Citizenship By Investment programme, in a bid to raise much needed funds for the rebuilding and reconstruction phase of Dominica’s physical infrastructure, in particular.
On this current itinerary, the Prime Minister will be making virtual whistle-stops in Hong Kong, Thailand and Vietnam, promoting Dominica as an ideal place to invest and domicile, under the economic citizenship programme.
During the absence of Mr. Skerrit, Hon. Dr. John Colin McIntyre, Minister of Planning, Economic Development and Investment, will perform the duties of Acting Prime Minister.
