PM Skerrit to address Boao Forum For Asia 2024 on Thursday

Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit and Melissa Poponne-Skerrit

Prime Minister Hon. Roosevelt Skerrit arrived in Boao, Hainan Province on Wednesday where he will address the Bao Forum for Asia 2024.

The Prime Minister is leading a high-level government delegation to China to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between Dominica and the People’s Republic of China.

He will address the opening ceremony of the summit, which brings together world leaders to expand political dialogue and international cooperation in the search for comprehensive and effective solutions to global problems.

The Prime Minister is expected to call on attending heads of government to strengthen cooperation and solidarity among countries to provide effective responses to common financial, economic and social crises. The Dominica leader will point to gross inequalities between developed and developing countries and the effects of climate change which threaten the existence of low-lying small island developing states like Dominica.

Prime Minister Skerrit and his delegation will make a final stop in Shanghai, China on Friday.

    Congratulations PM: You have placed DA on the world stage. Confusing Dominica with the Dominican republic is no more.

    DNO can you please indicate who are the other world leaders who are in attendance and not dependent upon China for everything? DNO I would appreciate your response. We are hearing of a celebration and a summit. Really, What is the purpose of the trip? And would you recognize Mellisa, and the other (brainless) as high level? “If onl Dominica could talk”.

    Dominica turn to a scarf now adays
    “The threat is within China” see it carrying on.

    Imagine these people are not doing anything for Dominica. They never worked one day – and enjoying plane rides and carrying on with good food and empty heads and don’t know any politics – our national wear does not war it at all – is not interested in – and brought thanksgiving to Domnica brought Halloween.

    Lacks the basic educational level to engage at this level – American citizens with American citizen children not able to recognize anything beyond dressing nice. A woman who should not be in politics at all furthermore on Chinese soil – you should be running to the nearest American Embassy; and requesting that they shelter you all.

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

    Skeritt just got married to China, who vex lost. Let’s await the honeymoon. China doe play, boy. Must be the smartest people on planet earth right now. All they do is show black leaders the money, that’s it. China has placed a mighty hook in the jaws of Dominica and that fish cannot escape. The Chinese have all our names and addresses and they are the ones calling the shots. Their submarine may well be stationed out there in our waters. Yep! We are sold by a Niger.

    I’ve never before seen a statesman walk the red carpet holding a briefcase. Must be a load of Yen?

    While the majority of Dominicans are literally catching HELL, Melissa and Roosevelt are basking in unbelievable extravagance. President Xi Jinping knows precisely how to wow those nakedly corrupt, egotistical, simplistic, predatory, lying despots.

    This trip with this many ministers of government and their surrogates will do serious damage to the country’s purse. Will Dominicans get value from monies spent? It’s a rhetorical question. No one needs to answer.

      Kid on the Block, I got a question to ask you. Did Lin Clown jump the fence, if you know what I mean. He writes nowadays like someone who has jumped the fence.

    Now I can say for sure but sadly, Dominica is completely sold. No maybe. China has won the World Cup. So my dear friend Linton, I’m not saying bye to you and UWP. But your fight now is with a Lion and a Bear.
