Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit has announced Government is near a decision on proposals to fund an international airport located in the Wesley Constituency.

“I will not shout out names from the public platform this evening but I can share with you this evening at least five solid proposals that I have in my armor for the design, financing, construction and operation of an international airport for Dominica.
