PetroCaribe provides employment

(DNO) Several Dominicans are expected to gain employment at PetroCaribe.

That announcement was made by the Marketing Manager of PetroCaribe Ian Pinard.

He told the official launching of the PetroCaribe LPG here this week that currently 16 persons are employed at the facility but that will soon increase to 33.

“This is a step in the right direction and we are taking another step forward. We are expanding a line of products that respond to the needs of the Dominican consumer of petroleum products. This signals our intention to meet the product line of our consumers. We encourage you to buy the products all of which are available island wide because your support will ensure that we are able to serve you,” he said.

He says PDV Caribe Dominica Ltd is seeking to advance Dominica’s expertise in the oil business.

Meantime Parliamentary Secretary in the Ministry responsible for PetroCaribe, Ivor Stephenson said the government of Dominica is committed to keeping the cost of living down and taking care of the elderly.

“This joint venture is a result of the coming together of Dominica and Venezuela and it’s a clear sign of the DLP government’s commitment to using creative means to tackle the issues affecting the people,” he added.

    Pinard and his GOVT. cannot be serious by saying that PDV Caribe Dominica Ltd is seeking to advance Dominica’s expertise in the oil business. Most of the world is putting emphasis on renewable energy and getting away from dependence on fossil fuels. GOVT should in this 21st. century be seeking to advance our expertise in GEOTHERMAL, SOLAR, HYDRO AND WIND ENERGY, all of which are cleaner forms of energy and certainly more ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY for the NATURE ISLE. Dominican Students who do well in the Subjects like Physics, Chemistry, Maths, Geography, Biology should be encouraged to specialise in those areas so that we could be masters of our own destiny. A Foreign company was given the contract for carrying out Geothermal exploration, although Dominican sons and daughters here and abroad have the expertise and potential to do just that. Of course, we could collaborate and link with other experts from outside, but to give away our important natural, geothermal resource in the control of a foreign company, hinges on neo-colonial attitudes and lack of foresight. Venezuela has vast supplies of oil, but Dominica is blessed with abundant SUNSHINE, RAIN, WIND and GEOTHERMAL Resources, which would definitely take care of our energy needs. What is absent is a proper PLAN of ACTION to make maximum use of those GOD-Given resources.

      We would have moved to the highest level with Petro Caribe if Ali Baba and his forty thieves were not pocketing the money. The IMF is still waiting on them to report what they are holding back from Petro Caribe
