Dominica invests CBI funds wisely

Dominica’s Marigot Hospital opens this week

Dominica has commissioned two new health centres that will cost almost US$2 million through funding by the Citizenship by Investment (CBI) Programme. Twelve health centres are to be constructed. These projects herald in a new era for the Nature Isle.

Healthcare has been high on the government agenda recently. Dominica opens its state-of-the-art Marigot Hospital this week. The hospital, also funded by the CBI Programme, has a 75-bed capacity with high-quality services, including emergency care and a trauma centre.

Dominica recently revealed that construction on its first geothermal plant will be finished in 2022. The government is constructing over 5,000 weather-resistant homes for its citizens, aligning with efforts to become the world's first climate-resilient nation, of which 25 percent have already been completed.

Ian Douglas, an MP for the Portsmouth constituency said: "From houses to hotels to health and wellness centres, road and bridges, sea and river defences, this country is being transformed one community at a time.”
