PM Skerrit now posturing to promote Dominica Agriculture as a viable option for the country’s economy
Prime Minister Skerrit is now making more positive comments about Dominica’s Agricultural sector. Some DLP Officials have been known for ridiculing this sector during his earlier years of being Dominica’s Prime Minister, allegedly saying that Dominica’s focus should be on Tourism and not Agriculture, and that Agriculture was a has-been Industry.
After his second term in office Mr. Skerrit appeared to have started recognizing that the strategy of substituting tourism for agriculture has not worked, and he is now taking up the posture of promoting the Agricultural Sector as a viable means for Dominica’s economy to generate income.
