Ms. Royer says the DHTA associates has been busy attending meetings with the minister & secretary of ministry of Tourism, Discover Dominica Authority, Ministry of Trade and the US embassy to prepare for Tourism Awareness which is in the month of May.
PRO of DHTA Simon Walsh says that crime have always existed in Dominica however, lately there has been a massive escalation.
Mr. Walsh says when a young person is about to commit a crime they have the opportunity to either choose the good path or bad path which allows him to commit that crime.
He believes that it is the job of the DHTA as well as the police to make the “bad path” unattractive.
