Tourism Minister; Senator Robert Tonge has called on each Dominican to play their part to ensure that Dominica is clean and green as the new cruise ship season comes to a start.
According to Tonge, a clean environment as well as improved customer service is both needed in order for the 2015/2016 season to be successful.
“We can’t continue throwing garbage all over the place, we are asking persons not to throw garbage indiscriminately, throw it when you are suppose to throw it so that the garbage trucks can pick it up,” he said.
Tonge continued, “Let us ensure that Dominica is green, clean and in a state for ourselves, and obviously if it is ready for ourselves, obviously any visitor who comes would be happy to see that.”
He announced that all cruise ships that are expected to visit the island during this cruise ship season are expected to make their calls since no cancellations have been reported at this point in time.
“So we expect the exact same amount of calls in Dominica,” Tonge stated. “We are making sure that all areas are clean, but we as individuals we all have to do our part to ensure that it is ready.”
