Dominica rated highly for ecotourism

Regional 10 Jan, 2020 Follow News

Dominica is one of the top 20 tourism destinations of the future, in a recently published Foreign Direct Investment Strategy ranking. It praised Dominica in two specialism awards categories: 'Ecotourism' and 'Health and Wellness Tourism.'

The 'Nature Isle of the Caribbean,' Dominica excels at offering eco-conscious tourists a unique experience that only the island's natural beauty, wellness facilities, exquisite locations and kind people can provide.

Dominica valiantly overcame the mass devastation following Category 5 Hurricane Maria in 2017. The same ranking bestowed upon Dominica the bespoke awards for 'Climate Resilient Strategy' and 'Voluntourism,' two titles it holds exclusively. Dominica was awarded as one of the top countries receiving bespoke awards for 'Hotel Development and Investment,' 'Incentives,' and 'Recovery.'

Thanks to reputable foreign investors wishing to become citizens of Dominica in exchange for an economic contribution, the island has managed to build enough monetary reserves to sponsor large scale rehabilitation and modernisation of the country. This ranged from rebalancing the ecosystem and investing in sustainable energy to fixing and reinforcing roads, bridges, hospitals, schools, homes and natural sites. The Citizenship by Investment Programme is at the heart of the country's remarkable recovery. CBI continues to support the island's hope to become "the world's first climate-resilient nation" as pledged by Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit and praised by National Geographic.
