With numerous calls being made across the region for coordinated efforts to firmly tackle the huge food import bill and ensure food security in the region, PM Skerrit is calling on the general public to support local.
Mr Skerrit made particular mention of the National Abattoir which is scheduled to officially open in April 2016.
He says it is his hope that through this abattoir, Government will be able to reduce Dominica’s import bill for meats, chicken and pork.
However, he says this is heavily reliant on the Dominican consumer.
