PM Skerrit calls for more positive discourse on development issues
Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit has called on citizens in Dominica and the region to move past negativity and to focus on the development of their countries.
The Prime Minister was at the time speaking on the issue of LIAT at the closing of the OECS Assembly in Antigua this week.
He said he was disappointed in the manner in which such important development issues were discussed.
“I think there is just too much pessimism in this region, and then we complain about unemployment, we complain about this, we complain about that,” the Prime Minister said.
He said “We are the cause of it in the region,” adding that nationals are “… wrapped around internecine, parochial party discussions and not about national and regional endeavours”.
Skerrit also highlighted LIAT’s importance to Dominica’s economic efforts, particularly to ongoing developments in the hotel sector.
