The Dominica Manufacturers Association (DMA) will convene its Third Annual General Meeting on Wednesday 24th September, 2014, under the theme “NURTURING YOUNG INNOVATORS FOR A SUSTAINABLE MANUFACTURING SECTOR”.

At this year’s Annual General Meeting the focus will be on young manufacturers and DMA’s thrust to get the Dominican youth involved in the manufacturing sector through the creation of new products and enhancement of existing products, through creative and innovative initiatives.

The products of ten young manufacturers, who participated in the recently held Make Something To Sell event, will be on this display and an open invitation is extended to the young manufacturers to become full fledge members of the DMA.

The Dominica Manufacturer’s Association will also launch the first edition of the DMA Digest, a manufacturer’s magazine that puts into focus the challenges and opportunities for a vibrant manufacturing sector in Dominica. The first edition of the magazine highlights the many possibilities of the coconut and the need to develop the coconut industry.

Other significant announcements for the development of the manufacturing sector in Dominica are expected to be made, at the meeting, by President of the DMA Jean-Yves Bonaire.

The Dominica Manufacturer’s Association recognizes the significance of the manufacturing sector in the economic growth of Dominica and is determined to develop a sustainable manufacturing sector that will result in the creation of sustainable jobs and wealth for the citizens of Dominica.

The Annual General Meeting will be held at the Garraway Hotel and starts with a closed door business session at 4:00 p.m. where a new executive will be elected to govern the business of the association for the next year and this will be followed by a formal session at 6:00 p.m. which will be opened to the media and the public.

All manufacturers are expected to participate in the event as DMA continues to strengthen the true potential of the manufacturing sector in Dominica. A special invitation is extended to young and aspiring manufacturers.
