MP for the Roseau south Constituency & Economist Joshua Francis notes that Dominicans are increasingly seeking other ways to generate income. He says one of the main thrusts to increasing productivity and economic growth in Dominica, is resuscitation and revitalization of the Agriculture.
Francis argues that rural economic opportunities in Dominica are basically non-existent, stressing that government has invested only in the capital city Roseau and in the town of Portsmouth. Francis sees revitalizing Agriculture as one of the main avenues to absorb and employ the young people into the workforce, and maximize their productivity.
