His Excellency the President, the Honourable Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs have conveyed messages of condolence to their counterparts through the Embassy of Japan on behalf of the Government and People of the Commonwealth of Dominica.
The Honourable Prime Minister has assured the Government and People of Japan of Dominica’s solidarity and support and has expressed every confidence that the level of preparedness of the government of Japan for such disasters and the efficiency of its response mechanism will enable the country’s speedy return to a sense of normalcy.
The Ministry has also conveyed its condolences to Mr. Tatsuya Morita, Resident Representative of the Japan International Cooperation Agency and Coordinator of the Japan Overseas Cooperation Volunteers programme in Dominica.
As a people and nation, we look forward to your speedy recovery and continued contribution to global economic and peaceful development.
