Dominica’s Ministry of Tourism is planning to make its carnival more attractive to visitors.
In 2019, visitor arrivals for the week leading up to carnival Monday and Tuesday were 5,196 which was a 129 percent increase from 2018 arrivals.
And this year, the Minister for Tourism, Denise Charles, said it is the government’s intention to attract more visitors to the ‘Nature Island’ while increasing participation.
The government is also looking to strengthen the work of the Discover Dominica Association in its ‘Festival Tourism Program’ and ensure that there is a year-round festival program.
These events will include the Real Mas, Jazz and Creole, dive fest, crab fest and the World Creole Music Festival.
