“We have put together a very compact and relevant programme with the aim of ensuring a meaningful and productive dialogue between our diasporan family and the cabinet of ministers, where factual information can be requested and received,” says Minister for Foreign Affairs, International Business and Diaspora Relations, Dr. Kenneth Darroux.

Minister for Health, Wellness, and New Health Investment, Dr. Irving McIntyre, Minister for National Security and Home Affairs, Hon. Rayburn Blackmoore and Prime Minister Hon. Roosevelt Skerrit will make presentations at tomorrow’s meeting. A special presentation on the ongoing international airport project will form part of the activity.

“An Efficient Service, A Sustainable Future”

Invitees can also expect cultural performances from the Paix Bouche, Petite Savanne
and Karifuna Cultural Groups, Belte Dominik, and local entertainer Benji, among others.

Following the meeting, members of Cabinet and all Dominicans present will converge on
the Botanic Gardens for Ti Vilaj Kwéyòl – ‘Tout biten Domnik,’ which is being held until
Thursday, October 27.

The Diaspora Dialogue will be streamed live via the Government Information Service, the
Government of Dominica YouTube channel, Government social media platforms and
DBS Radio.

    What has some out of the other diaspora meetings they have had in the past?

    Here is a rare chance for Dominicans from the diaspora to ask the opaque cabinet of nocturnal creatures and cheerleaders some incisive questions. Here are a few:
    *Why is the economy of Dominica in the doldrums for such an inordinate length of time?
    *Where is the Electoral Reforms report?
    *Starvation wages, rising unemployment, increasing crimes, political tribalism, judicial impropriety, ubiquitous corruption, what are you doing about these?
    *What does Melissa Skerrit’s role in government?
    *Would the country recoup the millions of public funds spent on Roosevelt’s nuclear family for rent, additional security, perks, etc.?

    If we get no answers to some of these burning questions then the meeting would have been a mammoth failure.

    Dear Diaspora,
    We are looking for at least 5,000 resilient voters for the next general election. As you know, elections always spur erections in our beautiful Nature Isle. Just look around and you will see our beautiful and resilient new erections. We have much more in the pipeline, but the airport takes the cake. Please know that the airport is so important that we have made it a Resilient and Sustainable Development Goal for 2030. The work to build a resilient Dominica is long and hard but there is an end in sight. As already indicated, I will demit office when my matrimonial son grows up and starts having children. Meanwhile, I have an unconditional love for you and will continue to fight for you. You are a good source of remittances and I want you to know that you have a stake in the elections. Please register with my diaspora liaison before you leave to reserve your place on the vote plane. Thank you. I love you.

    Every year they do this nonsense and tell people how wonderful they are. Every year they make the same promises. None have materialised yet. Don’t people see through this charlatan?

      Beta yet, they pay you no mind. You are just a waste of time. Go get a life. Nobody needs you. You are insignificant.
