The Buy Dominica Supercenter has been relocated at the Roseau Market, reportedly with the assistance of DEXIA, the Roseau Market Authority, and the Ministry of Commerce & Small Business Development. The business was originally located on King George 5th Street in Roseau, when it was first established on December 1st, 2015.
President of the Dominica Manufacturers Association (DMA), Severin McKenzie, made that announcement at the official opening of the ‘Buy Dominica Campaign’ which is being held during the month of September.
McKenzie hopes this location will be a permanent home for locally manufactured products. “The Buy Dominica concept was developed just about three years ago when we had the first Buy Dominica Expo in Roseau, and we continued on a number of occasions. However, on 1st December last year, we established the first Buy Dominica Supercenter on King George V Street”.
“We are pleased to announce that as of Thursday 1st September, the Buy Dominica Supercenter has relocated in the Roseau Market, with the support of DEXIA, the Roseau Market Authority, & the Ministry of Commerce & Small Business Enterprise Development.”
The main activities for the Buy Dominica Campaign include the ‘Buy Dominica Fair’ on September 23rd; an awards ceremony for product and service providers carded for September 29th, and a symposium for the manufacturing and services sector on September 15th; along with media events. McKenzie called on manufacturers to take advantage of the opportunities that are being provided.
He said, “The main aim of this campaign is to bring attention to Dominican products and services; so we will be promoting the need to support & purchase local products and services, and emphasizing the need to increase capacity and quality for growth in international sales”.
