Mckenzie said he hopes the location will be a permanent home for locally manufactured products.
“The Buy Dominica concept was developed just about three years ago when we had the first Buy Dominica Expo in Roseau and we continued on a number of occasions, and then on the 1st of December last year we established the first Buy Dominica Supercenter on King George V Street.” He continued, “We are pleased to announce that as of today [Thursday 1st September] the Buy Dominica Supercenter has relocated right here in the Roseau Market with the support of DEXIA and the Roseau Market Authority, and the Ministry of Commerce and Small Business Enterprise Development.”
He said the new location was not “not fully ready but assured that it was “almost there.”
The DMA president expressed appreciation for the assistance given by the Ministry of Commerce, “particularly the permanent secretary, Mrs. Esther Thomas and the Minister Miss Roslyn Paul who, he said collaborated with the company in making possible, the relocation of the shop.
He called on manufacturers to take advantage of the opportunities that are being provided.
The main activities for the Buy Dominica Campaign include the ‘Buy Dominica Fair’ on September 23rd, an awards ceremony for product and service providers carded for September 29th and a symposium for both the manufacturing and services sector on September 15th, along with media events.
“The main aim of this campaign is to bring attention to the local products and services of Dominica, so we will be promoting the need to support and purchase local products and services, but also emphasizing the need to increase capacity and quality for international sales growth,” McKenzie stated
