Regional 05 Aug, 2020 Follow News

Dominica is attracting much praise for its progressive policies

Dominica is featured in Forbes.com for its progressive attitude and ability to overcome adversity. Forbes.com praises Dominica for its “commitment to climate resilience — through renewable energy, organic agriculture, ecotourism, sustainable infrastructure and a culture of eco-consciousness — has provided a strong strategic and ideological underpinning for the Nature Isle’s social and economic development.”

The fact that only 18 people have been infected by COVID-19 with no deaths to date, is another plus point.

Forbes.com also praises Dominica for rebounding within two years after being decimated by Hurricane Maria in 2017, “becoming the fastest growing economy in Latin America and the Caribbean, according to Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean of the United Nations (2020)”.

Dominica’s rapid growth is a testament to Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit’s progressive attitude. He is determined Dominica becomes "the world's first climate-resilient nation". He plans to reboot the eco-tourism sector and its Citizenship By Investment Programmes are well respected.

Dominica’s CBI Economic Diversification Fund is fuelling development projects such as hurricane-proof public housing and a geothermal plant that promises to provide clean energy to 23,000 homes. Would-be citizens can support the ecotourism sector by investing in select properties, such as The Residences at Secret Bay, a limited luxury collection of fully appointed, sustainable residences.
