During the evening of Wednesday June 12th, a Town Hall Meeting was held at the Arawak House of Culture, as part of the OECS Mission Programme.
Throughout the meeting, Matthew Ross Leblanc, Labour Commissioner in Dominica, spoke of current labour issues within the OECS.
Mr. Leblanc feels, that Dominica is very vulnerable as it relates to natural disasters, therefore, Dominica as well as other Caribbean countries throughout the region, need to be united.
OECS Secretariat in St. Lucia, Mr. Ronnie Summa, spoke about the new growth and development program implemented by the OECS.
Mr. Summa said that it is no secret the OECS countries are facing tough economic times, and Dominica being a member country, needs to position itself to support what everybody else is doing, knowing that the benefits will return back to us.
Forthcoming the OECS plans to address the ongoing issues within the Tourism and Transportation Industry.
