He continued by saying, “We have the opportunity on this occasion, as we deliberate over the next few days, to take some decisions that can be truly transformative for our people, which will shape the future of our community for the next 50 years.”
The Prime Minister of Commonwealth of Dominica mainly focuses on transportation and unity of the intergovernmental organization. He stressed that it is time to turn interregional travel into a pleasure rather than a nuisance.
He suggested other CARICOM leaders develop innovative and affordable transport collaborations. Minister Skerrit underlines that he conducted all the research, and the figures show that an efficient transportation system will produce positive results.

In order to decrease food import expenses by 25%, a change in inter-regional transportation is necessary. That’s why Minister Skerrit highlighted the importance of unity and commented that the project needs investments and may not deliver immediate returns. But this service will boost commercial opportunities and lower the inflation rate in region.
