Roseau , Dominica – January 7, 2008………………..In his address to the Reunion Wivé activity on January 1, 2008, Prime Minister, Hon. Roosevelt Skerrit told Dominicans that the world Dominica operated in when it gained independence nearly thirty years ago had changed significantly.
“This great clarion call to visit the homeland is being sent out at a critical juncture in our history and in our development. This harsh reality is that the Dominica that is our home today is not, cannot and should not be the same Dominica that Britain handed over to us in 1978. The world in which Dominica now has to operate is a changed place,” the Prime Minister stated.
