Calls are being made for greater collaboration between the private and public sectors on island.
This call is coming from the Executive Director of the Dominica Coalition of Service Industries Lester Riviere.
The Dominica Manufacturer's Association, the Dominica Coalition of Service Industries, along with the Dominica export import agency DEXIA and the Ministry of Commerce collaborated on the Buy Dominica Campaign which ran throughout the month of September.
The theme for the campaign was "Buy Local, Go Global - Building our products and services for success."
The month climaxed with the first ever Buy Dominica dinner and awards ceremony where 10 manufacturers and service providers in Dominica were recognized.
And Riviere says the success achieved throughout the month would not have been possible were it not for the collaboration between the amongst the agencies.
Riviere says this campaign was not one to encourage persons to settle for substantial products and services in the name of patriotism.
