Ten young men are being trained in stone cutting organized by the Ministry of Employment, Trade, Industry & Diaspora Affairs.

Minister for Employment, Dr. Collin McIntyre noted such training is important as this is a skill that is being forgotten.

Dr. McIntyre noted, this is a good opportunity for the young men, and Dominica is fortunate to be blessed with the raw material.  He said they will continue to rehabilitate stone walls which have deteriorated with time and weather conditions.

The Minister added that his Ministry will train more young people in this skill, so Roseau can maintain its rustic look with modern technology.

Meanwhile the Stone Cutting Module instructor, Garvin Xavier says, the young men are learning a very important skill.

He added the young men are enthusiastic about the programme.
