President of Dominica, His Excellency Charles Savarin last week welcomed the new Ambassador of the European Union to Dominica, Her Excellency Daniela Tramacere.

The new ambassador expressed to President Savarin her enthusiasm as she begins her duties.

“I look forward to these four years ahead of us. I know we have alot work to do together. We are a strong and very committed supporter of the Commonwealth of Dominica. I am pretty sure that our relationship [which is] already very strong will be strengthened even further,” she said.

To which His Excellency Savarin responded, “I note your commitment to continue the work of your predecessors in maintaining and strengthening the harmonious and fruitful relations which already exists between the Commonwealth of Dominica and the European Union and to collectively address the major challenges of sustainable development and climate change, health, human resource development, security and energy.”

Following the presentation of credentials to the President Savarin, Her Excellency Tramacere paid a courtesy call on the Hon Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit.

The Dominica leader congratulated the new ambassador on her appointment.

He acknowledged the European Union as a major partner in Dominica’s development.

“Your footprints are in every sphere of our society from agriculture to health; trade, tourism, youth development…the European Union has assisted us very well in our economic and social advancement and notwithstanding your own challenges in Europe,” he said.

Her Excellency Tramacere said that she now felt reassured that Hon Skerrit has confirmed that Dominica understands that its relationship with the European Union will not be affected by the prevailing challenges.

“We are your sincere and devoted partner in this business, there is no doubt about it and I really appreciate your kind words about the fact that our support and our strategic alliance with you has been unwavering notwithstanding the difficulties we might have been challenged with in Europe,” she said.

Her Excellency Tramacere replaces Ambassador Mickael Barford. She will be resident in Barbados.

  1. Austerity EU
    November 8, 2016

    The same EU that has decimated most of Europe by cabal-enforced ‘austerity’ and spectacular fraud, is now our close partner?

    The sheer brass-faced of these people is astounding.

    • EU Loan we Cannot Repay
      November 14, 2016

      Yep, in the 19 years existence of this fraudulent organisation, they have NEVER delivered audited accounts see the Daily Telegraph’s report – .

      This means that none of their members have any idea of how they are spending the billions they are collecting each year from member states.

      The EU is the number 1 benchmark for organised fraud for all wannabe institutional crooks. O Yes, we will take their money. We have no shame, we don’t care that they are giving us money when millions of people in their member states are in ‘austerity’ mode and unemployed. O Yes, we will even take money for our passports from middle-eastern pedophiles who are allowed to marry kids as young as 3 years old in their countries.

      By the way folks, this money is a loan. It will need to be paid back at some time. Prepare for austerity!

      Dominica, hell…
