CREAD hosted the first of a series of meetings aimed at bringing together major players as collaborators, to determine the way forward for the agro-processing sub-sector in Dominica to fully thrive
CREAD Fosters Collaboration Among Agro-Processing Stakeholders For the agro-processing sub-sector in Dominica to fully thrive.It is critical that all stakeholders are on the same page and are aware of all that is occurring in the industry.To this end, the Climate Resilience Execution Agency of Dominica (CREAD), hosted the first of a series of meetings aimed at bringing together all the major players in the sub-sector to determine the way forward in a collaborative manner.
The meeting was attended by representatives of the Ministry, DEXIA, Dominica Bureau of Standards (DBOS), AID Bank and NCTE. Agro-processing has been a constant fixture on Dominica’s agriculture landscape; however, it has primarily been a cottage-based industry, barring the exceptions of enterprises such as Bello and Dominica Coconut Products, whose brands have become internationally known.
Discussions centred around the wide cross-section of initiatives currently being undertaken to enhance the sub-sector which include: Production of cassava and toloma have long been grown in these communities given their ability to flourish in the marginal soils and more importantly, the livelihoods of these communities revolve around the growing and processing of these crops. Composite bread trials have already been held with three bakeries utilizing cassava marsh, showcasing the potential for the product and the importance and need for these processing facilities.
It was further determined by the meeting’s participants that given the vast amount of work being undertaken in this sub-sector, a clear roadmap to prevent duplicity of projects in locations around the island needs to be developed. Additionally, agreements on food safety and Good Management Practices (GMP) must be accepted & adopted in the agro-processing industry.
Parliamentary Opposition Leader Lennox Linton reveals the murderous intention behind DLP parliamentarians & their Police contingent in Parliament on Wednesday
Parliamentary Opposition, Lennox Linton, reveals that because of his team’s decision to protest the Speakers decision to accept the motion moved by DLP Senator Cassani Laville, which requested a significant reduction of the Opposition Leader’s time for rebuttal to the Prime Minister’s Budget address, the lives of members of the opposition were threatened.
The facts are as follows: ‘this all happened as a form of revenge against Lennox Linton in a petty display initiated by Junior Senator Cassani Laville who moved this petty motion, that the opposition leader’s rebuttal time be reduced from 150 minutes to 30 minutes, in order to appease Minister of Finance Roosevelt Skerrit’. Linton attended the sitting of parliament for most part on July 28th 2021, and left before the finance minister gave his Budget address. It must be noted that Skerrit over the past 6 years has left parliament every time Linton gave his rebuttal to Skerrit’s National Budget Address.
Linton went on to further reveal that his team was threatened by a senior Police Officer in the Parliament. The Officer was heard speaking to other officers in Parliament and said, “Should you the Opposition members insider here touch one of us, we will just kill you all!”. The Dominica Freedom Party has also concluded that from yesterday’s behavior of the DLP Parliamentarians, the Speaker of the House, the Special Services Unit, and the Dominica Police Service, to date, ‘this is one of the worst behaviors displays of high-ranking members of the Police Service and Special Services Unit! The UWP says under the current Labor Party Leadership, Dominica is quickly becoming an oligarchy and a one-party state, with every passing day.’
