Dominica Economic Revival Summit Launched by United Workers Party and Electoral Reform Coalition

PRESS RELEASE

The United Workers Party (UWP) and the Electoral Reform Coalition (ERC) have officially launched a Dominica Economic Revival Summit 2024, under the theme ‘Planning for Sustainable Growth and Development.’ Scheduled to take place on June 4-6, 2024, at the Jungle Bay Resort and Spa, the summit will bring together key stakeholders, government officials, business leaders, and experts in various fields to engage in constructive dialogue and collaboration.
Addressing the event’s press launch on Thursday, April 25, UWP’s Political Leader, Dr. Thomson Fontaine said he expects participation from all stakeholders, regardless of political affiliation.

“Dominica’s economy and by extension, its people have suffered due to a lack of proper economic planning. Failure to plan for sustainable development while focusing exclusively
on revenues from the CBI program has resulted in an overall lack of development, failure to create jobs, and the generally poor state of the economy that we see in Dominica.” Dr. Fontaine stated.
The two-day sessions will focus on agriculture, tourism, manufacturing and construction,
knowledge and economy and renewable energy.
“We believe that this is the way forward for Dominica; all of us working together; all of us
planning together and all of us succeeding together,” Dr. Fontaine added.
Member of the ERC, Severin Mckenzie said the summit would help develop strategies to advance the country’s economic prosperity.

“The summit’s main objective is to begin the process of a masterplan which will serve as a
roadmap for Dominica’s future development. As we approach the end of the first quarter of the 21st century, there is no doubt that Dominicans are disappointed with the present state of the economy.

For those who are curious about what the link between electoral reform and an economic revival summit is; we in the ERC are very conscious of the fact that beyond electoral reform comes economic reform,” Mckenzie noted.
The Dominica Economic Revival Summit starts with an opening ceremony and awards dinner on Tuesday, June 4, 2024, at the Jungle Bay Resort & Spa. Tickets are available for EC$250.

The sessions follow on Wednesday, June 5, and Thursday, June 6. This is open and free to
stakeholders committed to driving positive change and economic progress in Dominica.
Registration information and a detailed agenda will be available in the coming weeks.
