Dominica’s Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit

To attract international cruises, Dominica will soon get a duty free cruise village to improve tourism and employment opportunities.

The announcement came from Prime Minister of Dominica, Roosevelt Skerrit, in early August.

In a report about the development on West Indies and Caribbean News Online, Skerrit said: “There is no question that we need to modernize our cruise and cargo ports. Therefore, we have embarked on a process towards the realization of two critical pieces of infrastructure in our country. We shall establish a cruise village which will include services to the ferries and duty free shopping.”

During his address in Dominica’s Parliament, Skerrit said he is also expected to meet with representatives of the cruise lines.

He said the idea of the new cruise village is to attract clients from the neighboring French islands Martinique and Guadeloupe.
