Having identified the numerous issues affecting the reconstruction process after Hurricane Maria, the Dominica Business Forum (DBF) has taken the initiative to convene a National Symposium on Housing and Construction under the theme – Practical And Sustainable Solutions To The Challenges Of Hurricane Maria: A Private Sector Response.

The symposium will provide the opportunity for stakeholders involved in the housing and construction sector to develop a coordinated approach to deal with the many concerns such as; the appropriate procedures to follow for
the rehabilitation of damaged buildings, the quality and availability of building materials, renegotiating mortgages, follow-up action with insurances, areas designated unsafe for housing development, among many others.

The event will be held on Wednesday 24th and Thursday 25th January 2018 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Windsor Park Stadium.

Posted below are two documents: a brochure with the programme for the symposium and the site layout.
