He further states that, “Team Dominica deeply appreciates the universal role in job creation, innovation, research and development, product development and wealth creation that young entrepreneurs contribute to the developing economy”.

“It is for this reason, we reflect this week on this important sector in our beloved Dominica. We understand the desire and aspiration of the Dominican youth to venture into the business environment, motivated to create wealth and employ as many people as possible. We also understand the reality of the hurdles standing in the way to such accomplishments”, he continued.

“The scarcity of capital resources and difficulties in accessing same, the decades long stagnant rates of national economic growth, the lack of technical research and development support and facilities, and the reality of a small market space are all fundamental elements discouraging our young entrepreneurs.

“We in the UWP-Team Dominica, recognize the urgent need for integration of key stake holders into sustainable functional partnerships to first grow our economy, secondly, prioritize government capital expenditure to encourage growth of the small business sector, thirdly, enact and modify where necessary regulations to facilitate and ease the process of small business establishment, and fourthly, be more calculated and objective in an overhaul of the education system to merge the outcomes of this sector to the human resource needs of the national economic goals.

We encourage all entrepreneurs in Dominica to keep up with the great work they are doing in the current circumstances. We pray for blessings of wisdom, courage and perseverance on each of you. May the coming days and years be more fruitful in your endeavours”, Honourable John ended.

    @Man bites dogs

    Stop embarrassing yourself. Your spelling, grammar and substance, all three, are incredibly atrocious. It’s like a severely insane person’s writing. Frankly, it’s bovine excreta.

    You have the right to criticize as you see fit., even me. But, your comments amount to extreme gibberish, in fact, unadulterated nonsense.

    My sincere and unsolicited advice to you is simply this. Take some evening classes to improve your writing skills. Use the Internet for self improvement. The Internet is like a double edge sword. It can be used to do good or bad things. Please use it for selft improvement and not solely to savage those you don’t like.

    My intentions here are strictly honorable. Wishing you well and hope to see some form of improvement. All the best.

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 6 Thumb down 3
