Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, has said Britain’s vote to exit the European Union (EU) is shocking and it will have an impact on a country like Dominica which depends heavily on foreign aid.

“It’s a major shockwave, it’s a major shock that has hit the world and it has been felt in Dominica from last night,” the Prime Minister said in a live interview on Kairi FM on Friday morning.

Commonly known as Brexit, the British people voted in a referendum by 52 percent on Thursday to leave the EU. The exit vote has been shocking with British Prime Minister, David Cameron, announcing that he will resign.

The vote has also sent markets around the world into a nose dive as a period of uncertainty emerges.

Skerrit said the repercussions will be felt almost immediately in Dominica since the EU will be losing a large chunk of its budget and it will have to
to restructure its whole approach to financing and development assistance.

He pointed out that Dominica has two or three outstanding packages from the EU, which he described as “significant sums.”

“One of which is about 8.9-millions euros which we have been promised from the EU as the result of Tropical Storm Erika and the cabinet had decided that that 8.9-millio euros would be used exclusively to continue improving farm access roads in Dominica,” he explained. “As you know, we have an existing contract of over $22-million or so for 10 or 12 feeder roads and the other feeder roads that were not captured in this financing, the cabinet has decided that we would use the 8.9-million euros to continue and to complete the rehabilitation of all feeder roads across Dominica and there are also other budget support that are outstanding from the EU.”

Skerrit pointed out that the exit will not have any impact on the bilateral relationship with the United Kingdom but over the coming months and years the negative impact will be felt in countries, including Dominica, that depend on foreign aid for their economic and social development.

“The decision to leave the EU is going to have major, major impact to developing economies like ours which rely heavily on development assistance from the EU,” he stated, adding that this is due to the fact that the priorities and the focus of the EU are going to change to see how it restructures without Britain.

“So the focus now will be within the EU rather than outside the EU and matters relating to the relationship of the EU with the rest of the developing world, Dominica included,” the Prime Minister said.

Skerrit explained the importance of foreign aid to Dominica and its development.

“Foreign aid is a crucial component of Dominica’s ability to finance its budget,” he stated. “I cannot recall a time that we did not need the assistance from our friendly partners. Grant aid has played and continue to play a very important role because as I have been saying to the Dominican population that the taxes which we pay, the revenue that we collect from the taxes which we pay, will always be insufficient to address the needs and the demands of the Dominican people and therefore we have to cultivate very strong diplomatic relationship with our traditional and emerging friends.”

    What The PM said regarding foreign aid is a fact and a reality.All our Governments before this DLP administration depended on foreign aid.When Rose Douglas became PM what was his first mission,wasn’t it to seek foreign aid from friendly Governments after the UWP left the Country bankrupt, was he criticized for doing such thing, it was looked at as something progressive, so why are criticizing this DLP administration for doing the same thing. All governments around the world depend on some form of monetary aid, bailouts, be it from a friendly country or some banking institution.The Chines Government right now is assisting the newly elected government of Jamaica in the form of soft loans to rebuild their road network.

    All of a sudden a new phrase “hand outs” has replaced foreign aid and become part of our political language. If we as a Nation do not want “hand-outs.” because it makes us look like a Nation of beggars we need to have a paradigm shift in our thinking and…

    Where do we get the idea that Governments create wealth. No Government on this planet has ever created wealth for it’s people. It is the populace of a country that creates wealth with their labour, producing goods an services using creativity and innovation. Governments get their revenue from peoples labour, collecting taxes and charging fees for services, Governments borrow money. The monies collected by Governments are used to finance their operation, paying salaries to the people who work within the bureaucracy, public servants, where is the wealth created by Governments, they produce nothing, Governments collect money and spends it.The Country with the largest economy in world is also the largest debtor. The great wealth of America was created by men with creativity and innovation not The Government.

    We need to unite, use our talents, education, creativity, and adopt a new paradigm shift in our thinking that will crate wealth, until them we will be living an illusion.

      Gary that is foolishness. Wealth in a country is created by investments; the government has to set the stage in order to attract investors, specifically foreign investments.

      The major infrastructure necessary to attract, and pull foreign investors into the country must be in place: If the government refuses to erect the necessary infrastructure, which could serve as a pull; who in their right mind will go into a primitive place to waste their money?

      Not even the native born Dominicans would do that!

      The world has long been in the jet, and container cargo age, Dominicans are talking about boat to transport people into and out of Dominica. Refusing to build an International Airport to accommodate both commercial and cargo jet Aircraft.

      There are many tings that the government can do to help create wealth in the country, but because they are too busy keeping the people in the bondage of poverty, they prefer the status quo!

    The PM’s below quote finally satisfy my belief, as to what’s really wrong about D/ca – the real plague affecting it. In this quote the PM highlighted two key areas, as a means of generating income/revenue for D/ca: TAXATION & FOREIGN AID. No acknowledgement of his ability to promote economic growth through – just to name a few:
    1 Innovation
    2 Requiring unemployed workers to volunteer.
    3 Removing unnecessary & unclear laws
    4 Tax cuts
    5 Jobs Bill
    6 Better Union Relationships
    7 Privatisation & Deregulation

      What a silly comment, why do you give your reason to the wind by making silly statements. Do you really believe that the money our Government collects is enough to address the needs of Dominicans. The seven things you mentioned as ways to create economic growth is somewhat laughable, it also shows gross ignorance on your part as to your understanding of Governments, economic growth and the mind set of our people. I would like to address all seven of your recommendations but unfortunately not enough space is permitted.

    It is quite incredible that the leader of a country cannot make the distinction between a vote of sovereignty in Britain and international development funding by the EU.

    Dominica is an independent nation; it is not Britain. I thought you may have figured that out by now.

    You seem to have jumped to the conclusion that Brexit will impact commonwealth countries. It is worrying in the extreme that Dominica’s PM is so naiive.

    Great Britain left the EU. Life has to go on and it will. G.B. will not collapse. There are poor people as well.
    Did you hear that the majority who voted to leave the EU are young people? These want to rule their countries, the world, not thinking what may occur.

    Cameron stated that the countries that do not endorse so-called same sex marriage will be denied any sort of funding. Have you forgotten that? Time took care of him.
    I do not know if it is a good idea that he resigned but he is angry and decided to resign.
    Canada’s PM said he is not interfering in their decision and that it will not change Canada which is in a good position.

    Power to the people. What was at stake of all this referendum, sovereignty, the peoples right to decide the destiny of their Country and to control their affairs, not to be governed and ruled by Bureaucrats that do not serve the interest of the people. The statements made by the PM are not based on knowledge and facts.

    • Boy this is the day you earn thumbs up from me, it is deserving, because you are correct in regards to the intelligence of Skerrit.

What I meant was i do not agree with the predictions he came up with regarding the future of our relationship with England and The EU. England as a Country will always have close ties with Dominica, regardless the results of the referendum, we will still continue to get assistance from them. The EU will continue with the other nations, this will not affect Dominica relationship with the EU.

For all of you trying to tie this EU fiasco to Dominica all you really dunce, because withdrawal of Britain from the EU will adversely affect, banks, businesses, institutions, cooperation, nations, countries.

    Seriously Mr. PM all you can think of is the foreign aid. HUGH problem. This shows a major failure within your government!!

    PM Skirritt you cannot keep using foreign aid only, as a development policy, it destroys the incentives of the people. The fate of country can only be changed by the will of the people and the government they put in place not from the handouts from foreign masters.

    More emphasis should be put on agriculture sector, small business industries and export of products. Don’t only give the people a fish, teach them how to fish. Sustainability!!! Self-reliance!!!

    Self-reliance equals, economic stability and government must create meaningful jobs and develop a vibrant hub of industry and commerce.

    Truth be told, all the caricom countries depend on foreign aid. Let us not talk as if Dominica is the only one and all will be affected by the exit of the UK from the EU. If we had to be self sufficient and not depend on foreign aid our lifestyle would be drastically different. Gone would be the fancy cellphones and fancy cars,regular vacation trips would be a thing of the past and food items which we now take for granted would be on the rationing block. For a country like Dominica to be self sufficient the people must be prepared to live a very simple lifestyle.

      That is a lie!

      To me you are using that as an excuse to justify the crap that Skerrit talk about aid. If all of the islands depended on aid from the EU to run their country, tell me why they are all more developed than Dominica! If you are correct; that means the aid Dominica receives as the other islands are not properly utilized.

      You should ask Skerrit this day if the other islands survive on foreign aid; how come their country are far more developed than Dominica, which also depends on the same handouts as the other nations?

      Can’t you see something is wrong with your argument? If you use Antigua, and even Nevis as an example you will come to the conclusion that your theory is wrong; and the fact remains Skerrit is the problem, which cause Dominica to be so backward, and undeveloped!

      Yes but after 16 years in government what are you exporting to either Great Britan or the EU? Aboulutely nothing. Even during slavery you were exporting and earning foreign exchange inflows into the country albieit to the benefit of colonial land owners, yet today, with slavery abolished 170 years ago, and independence achieved since 1978 we who fought for the right to control our own destiny have been reduced solely to aid recipents. You want money to fix feeder road, yet you are not producing any bananas, have no fruit processing plant, no coconut production so in some ways at least economically Dominica was better of during slavery. Although labour was free, the country was productive, earning foreign exchange and the slave master albieit brutal provided food, clothing and shelter for the slaves in exchange for labour whereas today no money is coming into the country so you have to line up and beg Skerrit….

    However, you can learn from PM Cameron, because he acted like an honourable MP and announced his resignation since he made a huge mistake. You see these politician are accountable to the citizens and actually deserve the ‘Honourable’. Which is more than can be said for you. Measured on PM Cameron you should have resigned 10 years ago.

    Seems like everywhere people are rising up for what they think is right, except in Dominica. Now that said, this might have a negative impact on Dominica if it turns out to be right on hurting the UK economy. Now if we look at long term and it does affect the USA economy as well as many economist think it will, we will really feel it in Dominica. We depend much more on the US economy doing good than many people think, we might not have the best relationship with the US but if their economy takes a hit, we will feel it worst in Dominica than they will in the USA.

You should excel in praying to God. He alone can help you. Our Lord Jesus Christ said, “Apart from Me you can do nothing.”
      Furthermore, what have you done for Dominica? What are your plans of doing something for it? Nothing can be achieved by criticisms and consistently so.
      Take note of the young leaders of Dominica, the latest Tina Alfred and more to come who are doing something for themselves and for their country; their country first. It is worthwhile emulating them and get others who are doing nothing to do likewise.

    Here is the true mentality of that boy Skerrit: The British people have decided to demit the EU because millions of British people believe it is in their interest to do so. Skerrit is not actually aware of the many reasons why the British chose to leave.

    All he worries about is the foreign aid he looks forward to stretch his hands out and grab, and grin his teeth. He like to talk about “Dominica’s foreign policy ” his foreign policy, is to beg, while neglecting every effort to industrialize Dominica, so that the country can become economically independent .

    Shucking he screams!

    How can a decision made by a majority of a country’s people be shocking to Skerrit?That is another everyday word the British people use in everyday conversation, I suppose he took that out of the mouth of the woman Scotland. If only Skerrit have any clue, he would have known that from the origination of the EU, the British people were against being a member, that is why they decided to retain…

      Nobody really sure why British people decided to leave the EU…unemployment is low, there are only 3mio immigrant workers in the UK, City is (was) doing good. France, Germany and Spain and Greece ….they have all reasons to blame EU. Majority of Brits blame immigrants for faults of their own awkward social services and insane housing policy. However people of the UK made their choice and opened Pandora box, which may lead to disintegration of the UK and EU as we know it…

    In a matter of hours, Skeritt commented on the EU Referendum, that is ok. However I have not heard him mentioned anything about the death of his friend, Ashe. If was nice to be standing close to Ashe when pictures were seen all over the world holding his hand cutting a cake like a just married couple, but to date we have not heard a public statement of sympathy to Ashe’s family. According to Sparrow, the dead should get up and slap them kind of people in their face. He wined and dined with the man in Macau at the endorsement of the South-South Expo ( Center), in fact, it was reported or alleged, under that deal, Dominica was supposed to get its own center because of people like Ashe. Today, Skeritt is behaving as though the man never existed. This is a reminder to people like Tony, Skeritt has all kinds of problems, presently, the only friend he appears to know is Tony, wait when Tony will be no longer important to him, he will be treated just like Ashe.

    Skeritt admits that Dominica depends on hand outs for survival but does nothing to improve the economy . Venezuela is sinking , he is concerned that the U K exit might be bad for Dominica then I hope he is going to stop all of the political sqandering of the treasury , like the amount he spent trying to rename the melvilhall airport bringing bus loads of people , the amount he spends on ground breaking for some projects that never gets off the ground , not to mention the millions he spends handing out to keep Dominicans in poverty so he can remain in office plus he is alawys out of the country . This is very expensive in air fair plus the stipen he recieves while out, plus hotel fees. Right now he sounds like a guy who depends on his mother inlaw’s pot and is concerned that she is and dieing and wonders WHATS NEXT?

When you say that The PM squandered money from the treasury trying to rename the Melville airport, The PM was not trying to rename The Airport, The Airport was renamed there is a difference. The money for such project came from the EU and Venezuela, not the treasury. You tell me of a ground breaking ceremony that never got off the ground.

    The quote I’ve seen that I think best describes the outcome is this: “The next 2 years will prove the UK made a horrible mistake. The next 100 will prove that it didn’t.”

    Neither the EU nor the UK will stop foreign aid as a result of Brexit. And if the UK economy, free from Brussels, ends up in better shape than it would have otherwise, that could even be a net positive for foreign aid in the medium term. And our relationship with the British is obviously much closer than that with the EU.

    Nevertheless, this uncertainty does once again highlight the importance of developing an economy strong enough not to need direct external support, and Dominica is definitely not there.

    • Dominican
      June 24, 2016

      Steve, seriously all you can think of is foreign aid? Have you ever considered the plight of the U..K. Dominicans, who made their home here,on a sterling pension, very often only a state pension fixed at the time they came here. I can foresee an exodus back to the U.K. by many of these U.K. citizens, and a dramatic decline in remittances. Sometimes I wish people would think more about others than themselves before opening their mouths.

      • June 24, 2016

        No, that’s not all I’ve been thinking about in all this, but the effect on foreign aid was the subject of the article.

        You’re right that the GBP and FTSE are taking a beating today, because markets hate uncertainty and this is a major event. But only those who believe that the UK economy is fundamentally unsound would expect the GBP to stay at this historic low.

        In other words, Brexit means more short term uncertainty, but I expect that it also means things will be better in the medium term, including for the pensioners you describe and people who rely on remittances from relatives in the UK.

      Steve, I do not believe the British made a mistake: we are dealing with “cause and effect.” As a member of the EU, there has always been issues affecting the British people; if indeed being a member of the Union was helping Britain, the people would not have voted to opt out.

      Steve, the British people was never in total agreement to be part and parcel of the union. That is why Steve from day one the British decided even if they were a member they were not prepared to get rid of the pound staling in favor of the EU, they retained the pound I suppose for the reason of yesterday.

      Skerrit can pout and talk nonsense, his voice does not travel one mile out of Dominica, to be heard in foreign, and international matters. The prime Minister has today resigned from Government, for obvious reasons; Skerrit should do the same!

        Note what occurred in other parts of the Middle East. As an example, Syria. Many countries took them in as refugees. Now they are a financial burden on those countries.

    Why do we even celebrate independence when a P m of a country can talk like this. Skerrit concerned is the aid Dominica will loose. Why would you want to become prime minister of a country to continue begging and insist that is all yiu know to do to develop a country. This is absurd. The EU still has 27 countries and great Britain will be fine like they did for 100s of years. The British. Empire is intact (commonwealth) . skerrit is worried about losing another siphon of money because he has done nothing in 16 years to put Dominica on sound economic footing. Keep on begging. Britain was great before EU which has only diminished British power and influence so they will be better off. Ever wondered why they kept the commonwealth intact. Britain has a foot hold on half the world including the USA and Canada. They will be just fine. Cameron made a huge political blunder by brining up the referendum now he paying for it.

    • June 24, 2016

      “Cameron made a huge political blunder by brining up the referendum now he paying for it.”

      That’s true, but it’s interesting to remember that Cameron didn’t even want a referendum. He only agreed to one because he was afraid the Tories would lose seats in Westminster to UKIP, either through defections or at the polls. Now UKIP has achieved their very reason to exist without ever having elected more than a small handful of candidates. Nigel Farage is either the cleverest man in Britain or, more likely, the luckiest.

        June 24, 2016

        Yes, but he underestimated the desire of the people who from conception was not in favour of Britain in the EU. It has always been a shaky relationship. Many concessions were made for them to join and they still were skeptical. In light of the migration crisis and Britain waiting on Brussels to tell it what to do when Brussels itself is weak i am not suprised. Right now the EU is as strong as the UN. A chain is as strong as the weakest link and i think the British did the right thing. All the doom and gloom story is only to play on peoples fear of the unknown. He thought the brits would vote for staying in the EU and that would silence the UKIP once and for all. Well the people have spoken. It will be probably the greatest political miscalculation in British history. The funny thing to me is to see Britain fighting for independence. Smh.

      They also had the same amount of GDP growth by percentage last year as Dominica.

      Shaka, you are better than that. You tried to score political point on PM but you of all people know darn well we cannot make it without foreign aid. We are not there yet, still need to beg. Antigua is a good example, they have vibrant sectors, tourism which far surpass Dominica’s but rely on foreign aid for many shortfalls until they see exponential growth in tourism etc. We are all 3rd world. It is very very difficult, and unheard of, to come from hundreds of years of slavery and colonialism to be self dependent in a few short years. It’s not going to happen. Skeritt could have done more in 16 years, considering he never listened to you :wink: but U know he is neither an economist nor does he exhibit the ability to grow an economy (neither does your guy) but we need the financial aid like we need a cure for cancer. If your replacement PM will not seriously seek foreign aid at this point in time, you will both be making a even bigger mistake than you claim Cameron did.

The fact that you think i am trying to score political points indicate you agree that is no way to develop a country, not by any party/government. Any government that insist its people are helpless needs to go. Keep using slavery excuse for BS and tell yourself you not capable.

        Our right of self-determination is our natural rights given by God. Best way to understand it is look at the story of Robinson Crusoe, when he was shipwrecked with nothing he never stood by waiting for handouts from anybody he did for himself.
        For you to seat back and accept handouts in your national budget is a crying shame, it means u are lazy, love to beg, and will never grow.
        Life Liberty & the pursuit of happiness.

  44. What the PRIME MINISTER fails to understand in this equation is the vital importance of creating and improving internal economic growth engines such as trade, manufacturing, a robust private sector, lower energy costs and major small business development to ease the pressure from reliance on foreign aid. This (one man) Government has been relying too heavily on loans, grants and gifts from outside from the very beginning of his reign as Prime Minister until NOW. Although, foreign aid will ALWAYS be needed and welcomed reliance on the same too heavily will also ALWAYS lead to detrimental consequences with the ebb and flow of the Global Economic Market! Dominica is now almost totally reliant on foreign aid, passport sales, a struggling tourism sector and taxes, none of which are really sustainable in the long term. Unless we begin to grow our economy from WITHIN we are heading down a very, very dangerous road.

    Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, has said Britain’s vote to exit the European Union (EU) is shocking and it will have an impact on a country like Dominica which depends heavily on foreign aid.

    “It’s a major shockwave, it’s a major shock that has hit the world and it has been felt in Dominica from last night,” the Prime Minister said in a live interview on Kairi FM on Friday morning.
    with British Prime Minister, David Cameron, announcing that he will resign.
    The vote has also sent markets around the word into a nose dive as a period of uncertainty emerges.

    Skerrit said the repercussions will be felt almost immediately in Dominica since the EU will be losing a large chunk of its budget and it will have to
    to restructure its whole approach to financing and development assistance.
    TAKE THAT SKERRIT-This marks the precursor to your demise you will get an anxietyattack soon
    do us a favour do a Cammeron for us please then give us the bank accounts #s we will take the palace…

      as I always say some of you all is do not understand the issues and the effects. but again that’s how you all make you all self happy.

      and you all always rejoicing on others victory yea. lol never on you all own.

      win something so you can truly rejoice on you all win.

      wishful thinking you all have.

      but if there is one thing I will say to you all change will come in Dominica Government but surly not to the UWP.

      MAYBE AS SKERRIT AS PRIME MINISTER BUT NOT A UWP GOVERNMENT.

      BUT GOING BACK ON THE ISSUE THE MOVING OUT FROM THE EU BY ENGLAND WILL SURELY HAVE A GREAT EFFECT ON THE CARIBBEAN.

      JUST IMARGING LOOSING YOUR RIGHT HAND. U WILL STILL MOVE ABOUT BUT NOT AS WHEN U HAD YOUR MOST USED HAND. AND STOP SEEING EVERYTHING IN A POLITICAL EYES. CAUSE U CAUSE PEOPLE LIKE ME TO REPLY AND PUT SOME EDUCATION INTO YOUR BRAIN.

      SHOW WE ARE A EDUCATED PEOPLE WHO CAN DISCUS ISSUES MATURELY FOR GOD SAKE.

        If u don’t whayt ur leader saying come and take over ur party lol!
        U know why/how LL left DGS? in 73? I would tell you to ask Angol but he is dead.
        It began( the expulsion) with a burst-head by who to who???? check DGS achieves.
        so. ” Let the police and Tony come to my house they’ll find out what time it is.
        I guess the bull dog outside his brother’s house and the other breeds. I recall Ruby Ridge in the hinterlands of the USA and a few other standoff between Gov’t f the USA and civilians.
        Just recently in Oregan a protester pulled a gun and was shot. Is this what UWP’s leader want?

    Here’s a thought Mr. PM. Let’s focus on being self sufficient. Create incentives for Local Manufacturers to build and/or expand their businesses. This will create direct jobs which will mean more taxes to be collected such as PAYE and Corporate Tax. Let’s get this going so we can depend a little less on “our friendly partners” for assistance.
