Pushing the integration process forward has been identified as one of the top agenda items, for Dominica’s newly appointed Commissioner to the OECS and Ambassador to the OECS and CARICOM Felix Gregoire.
Gregoire’s official position was announced by Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit at a meeting last week, with Dominicans living overseas.
Gregoire, government’s former cabinet secretary, is replacing the late Charles Maynard who passed away recently.
“I am very happy to be part of this because all my life I have been trying to bring unity in what I do. In the workplace my strength was on team building and this is one of the reasons I excelled in the service. Now I am given a chance to work at an OECS level. I am happy I was afforded the opportunity to represent my country,” he explained.
Gregoire will attend the first meeting of the commission this week.
“I am relatively new to this position and I will be getting for information and understanding of my role. I want to push the integration movement in whatever way I can and with the support of persons who can help,” he said.
Gregoire’s contract is for one year in the first instance.
