Businessman Anderson Jolly believes that changing the current political leadership of the country is up to the people, they must first reject their offerings in order fora change to take effect
According to businessman Anderson Jolly, it is up to the populace to alter the political leadership that exists now. Change doesn't always result from what we think will cause it, and when it doesn't, it's simple to assume that it cannot occur. Believing that making significant changes in our life is impractical or even unattainable has an allure that is seductive. He claims that the system may not even alter unless the people decline the offers of incumbents.
He added that the people's votes established the elected officials in their positions. Therefore, the people have the authority to make any required changes in order for anything to possibly be improved. He observed that because individuals are at ease in the system they have created and manipulated, they will never want to change anything.

At the recent international exhibition "SIAL Paris 2022", Caribbean food and beverage firms stood out from the competition with high-end goods ranging from coffee and chocolate to rum and wine
At the just-completed international expo SIAL Paris 2022, Caribbean food and beverage manufacturers stood out from the competition with their high-end offerings of rum, wine, and everything in between. Fourteen Caribbean brands, exhibiting under the 'Absolutely Caribbean' banner with the assistance of the Caribbean Export Development Agency and the European Union, left a lasting impression on thousands of Agri-food professionals with their genuine, inventive, and distinctive products that use natural, flavorful ingredients.
SIAL is the world’s leading bi-annual trade fair and this year it attracted around 300,000 visitors along with 7,000 exhibitors from over 200 countries. The major tradeshow has not been held since 2018 because of the COVID-19 pandemic, so visitors were looking forward to five days of networking, engagement, and discovery, with organizers saying the event could generate close to €50 billion in business transactions.
George Philips, commercial director at Wanis, a renowned UK food and beverage distributor, told Caribbean Export that he was delighted with the variety of quality Caribbean items on display at SIAL after visiting the "Absolutely Caribbean" booth. I think this demonstrates that Caribbean producers are all stepping up their game and producing brands that can compete with anything in Europe or the US, he added.

Dominica Freedom Party political leader Bernard Hurtault asserts that we need a paradigm shift in our perception and expectations of leadership, and of the people we choose as leaders
Given that leadership is a crucial component of all government and governance, the problem of leadership obviously stands out among the various concerns that political science addresses. Bernard Hurtault, political leader of the Dominica Freedom Party, continues to make the case that the Dominican society needs to make a paradigm shift in how we view leadership and our expectations of the leaders we hope to select. He says when considering leadership, there is something a little antiquated about our society’s approach that needs to be altered.
Political leadership is considered to play a crucial role in how nation-states respond to both traditional governance difficulties and more recent global ones. Hurtault emphasizes that we must reconsider the process by which we determine our leaders and, more especially, the individuals we choose. We must rethink what leadership entails in general and situate people in a context that would enable them to demonstrate appropriate leadership qualities for effective governance.

Justice Dr Irving Andre contends that rather than a super leader, what Dominica needs is a leader with ambition, vision & sophisticated ideas and techniques to guide his people toward success
Political leadership is the act of leading a political organization, whether it be local or global. To guide his people toward success, the leader must possess sophisticated ideas and techniques. Justice Dr. Irving Andre contends that rather than a super leader, what we actually need is a leader with ambition and vision. This leader must be able to inspire others while setting priorities and goals for group development. He said that the political leader should be someone who embodies the ambitions of the people and also focus on building a stable foundation, and it’s necessary to accept new technology and opportunities.
Leadership is the activity of guiding, directing, or motivating people to help them achieve specific goals. As he continues, he notes that if you wish to be a leader, it’s essential to understand the intricacies of politics. Otherwise, you won’t have the necessary understanding of how things work in your country. Andre emphasizes that we must start from the ground up to instill in our people the aspirations of wanting the best for themselves, family and their country. He notes that this is the paradigm shift others have been discussing on previous occasions.

Dominica Freedom Party Political leader Bernard Hurtault emphasizes that we need leaders who are inspiring, intellectual & capable of foreseeing the real needs of Dominicans
How should political leadership be defined? There are various issues with the subject. Some contend that it has to do with having the ability to properly implement a vision. Others, though, contend that it involves having the courage to speak out for what you believe in. The political leader of the Dominica Freedom Party, Bernard Hurtault, is of the opinion that the leadership in the Dominican society needs to have a clear perspective in order to embody a vision of openness and honesty that will motivate the Dominican people.
He emphasizes that outstanding leaders must be self-conscious and aware of their strengths and weaknesses. They must also be willing to take risks and have a strong sense of justice. They act with morality, sincerity, and compassion in whatever they do, setting an example for others to follow.
Political leaders must have a comprehensive awareness of the world, especially its people. Morality and skill are essential components of effective political leadership. Hurtault continues by saying that in order to embody and fulfill for the people all the attributes we speak of, this leader must be able to harness the potential of such a well-developed team. He says excellent leadership is frequently defined by the deeds of great leaders, and that we need leaders who are inspiring, intellectual, and capable of foreseeing the needs of Dominicans.

Cadance Lypso Advocate Leroy "Waddix" Charles expresses concerns on some aspects of the 2022 edition of Dominica’s World Creole Music Festival while others differed
The World Creole Music Festival was once again highlighted on this morning's broadcast of the Hot Seat with host Matt Peltier, as callers discussed the positives and negatives of the event during the previous few days with Cadance Music stalwart Leroy "Waddix" Charles. Mr. Peltier stated that while some people thought it was the best event we have presented in the past 24 years, others expressed disappointment and pointed to areas for improvement.
Mr. Charles highlighted some of the positives he saw during the weekend, from an increase in ferry traffic to income that taxi drivers and other service providers earned and the quality of the local cuisine. He characterized the result as "a massive economic boom" for Dominica.
Charles also expressed a few concerns regarding some areas he had observed. He suggested that the word ‘creole’ should be dropped from the name of the festival, as he saw a complete divergence between the word and the definition of Creole. Many however disagree that the word creole should be dropped for the name of the festival, but suggest instead that more creole music should be included in the line-up of the staged events. Charles claimed that for the most of its history, the festival was regarded as a cadence and zouk festival, which later spread to other creole regions of the world. That notion too was questioned by many others who knew of the inception of the idea for the festival.
