Prime Minister Skerrit visits Suriname seeking greater cooperation

File Photo of Prime Minister Skerrit

Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit of Dominica is officially visiting Suriname according to a report from the Dutch Star News Paper in Suriname.

Skerrit will hold discussions at the highest political level with President Desi Bouterse. The Prime minister will stay in Suriname until 15 June, the National Information Institute of Suriname stated.

Intensifying the bilateral relations between Suriname and Dominica is the main theme of the visit. The relevant areas that will be discussed include: agriculture, tourism, trade and construction as well as cooperation in the field of climate change. Also on the agenda is the contribution to the reconstruction of Dominica, which was badly hit by Hurricane Maria in 2017. Suriname was one of the first countries in the region to offer relief goods to the Caribbean.

Prime Minister Skerrit’s itinerary will also include visits to various agricultural districts with an emphasis on the rice and banana sector. Discussions will also be held about coconut planting and the processing into coconut oil. A Memorandum of Understanding to strengthen and deepen bilateral cooperation is also one of the intentions of the visit.

The Prime Minister of Dominica will be accompanied by a small delegation consisting of the Minister for Climate Change, the Director of the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Fisheries and the Director of Forestry.

    Captain (Punjab PhD) Skerrit if you are not aware or forgot the rules let me remind you; that the last man who is supposed to leave the Sinking Ship is you bro. “sos sos sos the oil pressure reading low in Venezuela; and the ship sinking” you d first man to bail out garcon. What a disgrace for a so called friend of Venezuela and it’s suffering people after milking the money “COW” dry.

    But wait! Surprise the Other One has not followed. Every time the PM goes out he follows. The one that is suffering from be the Prime minister’s complex. So laughable to hear Mr. on q95 telling Matt he can win 21 seats ???. Maybe a slip of his tongue. Maybe he meant he will be looking 21 seats. That was with a question Matt asked the Novice about the statement the PM that Dominica presently does not need an opposition.

      Skerrit is confused. Really confused. His economy is a ness and he therefore run bout ooking fr friend begging for investment and maybe cash to help his ailing economy that his corrupt Labour Government and blind loyalist are responsible for. And, Kid on The Blind that you are, in addition this immature Kid. Focus on the poverty and poor economy that Domininca has been reduced to by your corrupt labour government and immature Prime Minister. Its tells that Skerrit is ignorant of development planning and his approach is one of a fast food catering political scam. Well, it wont work. There is no short cut to social and economic development as it is a science and that requires a disciplined approach with mature, educated, experienced people and politicians at the helm. Skerrit is not there yet, he is the cause for the Mess that our island id in nw.
      Skerrit must Go.

    @Kid on the block…You really think like a kid and needs to grow up…are you not getting older yer by year?Well, No foreign newspaper had to tell us the “other one” was in Colorado sniffing ganga oil; he made his whereabouts known; plus, he entertained calls from a particular talk show host from a particular media house (the one people like you hate) and shared contents of his mission; Does your PM you lionize do that? Most of the time we know he is out on diplomatic business from papers of the country he visits…but we want to criticize “the other one”

    Economy – overview:

    Suriname’s economy is dominated by the mining industry, with exports of oil and gold accounting for approximately 85% of exports and 27% of government revenues. This makes the economy highly vulnerable to mineral price volatility. The worldwide drop in international commodity prices and the cessation of alumina mining in Suriname significantly reduced government revenue and national income during the past few years. After 99 years of operations, a major US aluminum company recently discontinued its activities in Suriname.

    Public sector revenues fell, together with exports, international reserves, employment, and private sector investment.Economic growth declined annually from just under 5% in 2012 to -10.4% in 2016. In January 2011, the government devalued the currency by 20% and raised taxes to reduce the budget deficit…

      June 12, 2018

      Continue!
      In January 2011, the government devalued the currency by 20% and raised taxes to reduce the budget deficit. Suriname began instituting macro adjustments between September 2015 and 2016; these included another 20% currency devaluation in November 2015 and foreign currency interventions by the Central Bank until March 2016, after which time the Bank allowed the Surinamese dollar (SRD) to float. By December 2016, the SRD had lost 46% of its value against the dollar.

      High import price pass-through from depreciation and electricity tariff increases caused inflation to increase 55.5% year-over-year in December 2016.Suriname’s economic prospects for the medium-term will depend on continued commitment to responsible monetary and fiscal policies and on the introduction of structural reforms to liberalize markets and promote competition.

      The government’s over-reliance on revenue from the extractive sector colors Suriname’s economic outlook. One credit bureau forecasted that…

    • Francisco Etienne-Dods Telemaque
      June 12, 2018

      Finally:

      The government’s over-reliance on revenue from the extractive sector colors Suriname’s economic outlook. One credit bureau forecasted that the economy would contract 2% in 2017. Rising international oil prices and higher production by Suriname’s oil company, Staatsolie’s, will lift oil exports.

      Two new offshore oil exploration wells will draw 100 million dollars in foreign direct investment inflows. Higher gold prices and increased production from the Merian gold mine also will lift exports. However, investment overall is slowing and unemployment is rising, reflecting government spending cuts, weak business confidence, and the completion of large mining infrastructure projects.

      Fiscal problems, such as a failure to secure sufficient external financing, could result in additional pressure on the exchange rate and inflation.

      Nothing wrong with it. But for 18 years all this guy has done is go around parading Dominicans and Dominica as a helpless incapable country. Did he ever find markets for our goods in China, Venezuela, Singapore and any of those countries. Bilateral means we have something to offer and they have something to offer. The only product we sold were passports that requires no raw materials and processing therfore employs a select few. Nore the select dew used to build themselves and the rest wasted on projects and activities that bring little to no returns. Instead of investment the funds used on social programs, political rallies, village council projects with no plans or means of measurements of sucess and returns. In other words the flushing toilet economics. A wise investor will turn $500 into 50 million and he can diversify his portfolio to ensure sustainability. Now our PM going learn how plant banana and coconut. Am I the only one seeing how rediculus this is? Ask ian Douglas.

        Those are my same sentiments to the question (???? raised by nng1332). This failed OM has no clues of the discipline, etiquette and Protocal of development. He goes to bed lost and he wakes up in a political trauma lost to what he may have done the day before….dreams of fantasy projects and wakes up without a clue as to where was he 8 ours earlier, what he dreamt and is woken up lost as to what to do, let alone where to start. Skerrit is best at some one buys him toys to play with and the gadgets children put together will keep him playful in the back of his home. This man is not, has not been prepared for public office. He failed as Minister of Education and like a puppet on the strings his blind loyalists made him PM after the Labour gang of 16 harassed Hon. Pierre Charles (what a decent man – RIP) and made him this lollypop PM that he is now today. Skerrit, a failed Prime Minister the worse after Papa & Baby Doc of Haiti. Look where Haiti is today. Domininca – We are there now.

    Nothing is wrong with fostering bilateral or multilateral relationships with other countries. Since no one individual nor no one country has a monopoly on good ideas, people and countries need to collaborate and foster close relationships that will redound to the benefit of their citizens. The problem with Skerrit he often travels overseas without informing his the people who elected him. The people want servant leadership not dictatorship. He frequently goes globe trotting , spends huge sums of money for airline fees and accommodation, and return like a thief in the night without any deliverables. His trips amount to joy riding and curious adventures. After spending these colossal sums of tax payers dollars on many of these futile outings, many adults and children go to bed hungry, their water and electricity get disconnected, they can’t fill their prescriptions. Yet people are inclined to vote this man back in office. The people get exactly the government they deserve. Wise up!

        KID ON THE BLOOK , be brutally honest with yourself. Are you truly satisfied with the economic and social conditions that prevail presently in Dominica under 18 consecutive years of ruinous governance by Skerrit and the DLP? You are quite happy to gloat about the DLP’s ‘victories’ at the polls but this is precisely the problem. Instead of working hard and smart for the entire duration of every term (the full 5 years), the DLP only cares about winning elections at any cost to maintain their hold on power. The only time this party works arduously is during an election campaign. For the first 4 years of every term the PM goes country hopping, the Cabinet Ministers drive through their constituencies with their tinted windows up. Nothing much happens but a few handouts here and there. What gives the DLP their tainted ‘victories’ at the polls are the overseas voters. If this were to be discontinued , the DLP will fade away into oblivion. Campaign financing & electoral reforms are…

        I agree with you but what does that say about a people who consistently vote an incompetent, corrupt and self serving government into office? You see it’s not just about talk but real action. Case in point: skerritt told the people of Portsmouth “ I want the same thing for your children that I want for my children” and the all applauded. But let’s exsmine this statement and put it in its proper context. How and when will the parents of Portsmouth be able to send their pre-school aged children to pioneer prep. Or any other similar pre-school? When and how will they be able to send their sons and daughters to private school in the US? How on earth will this be possible when there are no jobs and the government(skerritt) does nothing to create an enabling environment for investment and job creation? So ponder on that before you talk crap.

        Papa Dom; it is hypocritical for Roosevelt to make the claim that he want the same for the people’s children as he want for his own children.

        If indeed Roosevelt wanted the same for his children as he want for any child in Dominica, he would not ensure that his wife gives birth to all of his children in America: ( in the United States of America), which is the richest nation on the planet earth.

        It is a privilege for one to be born within the continental United States of America? It’s a privilege, and an honor to become an American Citizen!

        I enjoy that privilege, my children who are all born on the island of Antigua have become American citizens, hence, all of my grandchildren are American born!

        If Roosevelt want the same for the Dominica child as he wish for himself, how come when he is sick, he does not visit a doctor in Dominica, his choice and that of his wife is to get treatment in America.

        Isn’t it not true that Linnox is the woest opposition leader ever lead an opposition party in Dominica? He has brought politics to it’s lowest by being the only opposition leader to pay thousands of dollars by the highest court , the prevy council, for his lying tongue?
        He also holds a record for the opposition leader with the most court cases filled in the courts of the country.
        He also holds a record for the only opposition leader of the country that damages the image of his country whenever he travels out of state.

    I am looking forward to the Day that some other nation can look to Dominica for financial aid or technical advise for something!!..
    This has been the trend for 40 years of “independence”, where we always try to extort aid from other countries who’s citizens work hard, make the necessary sacrifices to build strong institutions and fight corruption for the advancement of all rather than some. They understand what it takes and they make the sacrifices and I swear, it does not look good that Dominica is always so needy all the time. Regardless of who in power. As a nation we have to focus on accumulation. Not long ago it was Korea, There’s Venezuela, There’s Cuba, there’s Russia etc…Can we do something sustainable for ourselves?

It’s ludicrous to give any human being blind support especially undeservingly so. Sometimes I search hard and wide to heap praise on the PM for some phenomenal feat that he has accomplished that has benefitted the masses. Have his policies and vision positively impacted infrastructure, healthcare, national security, economy, agriculture, political cohesion, people’s livelihood? The answer is a resounding ‘NO’! How then can anyone of conscience continue to lend support to this man for eighteen consecutive years of monumental failure.?

These are strong words and they must not be used loosely when espousing partisan political beliefs.

        As to you seeing nothing good that The PM has done for Dominica, that is your belief, it is your personal conviction, a personal conviction is not necessarily the truth that is OK, but you are not the sole judge for all Dominicans and you must not ignore facts.

When their sons and daughters are about to leave their house, don’t they ask a question. Is it ok, with them, that their children leave and return whenever they want.

        America is a sovereign country, the same as Dominica, and as far as I know; and the world knows America secrete service does not provide any form of protection for foreign  prime ministers(not even Roosevelt Skerrit you all believe is a god), even when they are in America!

        Roosevelt is nothing when he leaves Dominica; (when he is out of Dominica).

        And if the secret service was looking for Roosevelt, I can bet my life they would not disclose that to any Dominican, they would know exactly where he is at all times! It they want Roosevelt, the only time Dominicans would know about it is when they take him into custody!

      Issac is extremely desperate man. He was in a reputable political Party, the UWP. Things happen we guess in his personal life and he had to make a decision because the cup was running over. He then chose to run to the questionable gang engaged in Bin and Fertilizer Bobol. His name may be tarnished for life as political is a very widely read subject matter. I feel for you sir, good luck in the company of this corrupt gang, you name is likely yo be tainted for ever. It is not too late to get out. …if not you are condoning corruption behavior at the states level. Run Issac, run away as fast as you can from this Corrupt Labour Party

    Thats transparency at its best. The PM is in Suriname and DNO got the news from star news Suriname. DNO was there no source from Dominica for this announcement? Did GIS not announce prior to trip? Would be interesting to know.

    ADMIN: We are unaware of any local source or release.

      Thanks for your response. I guess tax payers don’t pay for those trips so the Dominica public does not need to know. I pray for deliverance from the clutches of ignorance. Ok we dont grow rice and probably never will. Dominica has more personnel with agriculture degrees per capita than any country i know. We once planted coconuts, made soaps and oils. There is a small company on the northeast fighting for years to develop the cold press virgin coconut oil. We have planted bananas for years and made millions. With all the investment we made in tech coll teaching agri and all these college grad in agri we forgot how to plant banana and coconut and cannot develop our own. After 18 years thats how bad it has come? I know Dominicans with PHd in soil science, agri economics, agronomy and more. On famous psychologist said if you continuously tell people they stupid and incapable they eventually believe it and act that way. After 18 years thats what has happened. Look within yourself…

      ADMIN Update: Since our article, a press release has been sent by one of the Prime Minister’s aids.

        What a big joke from the Prime Ministers aids…sounds like aiding and betting to me., Why? this so called M jumps on a plane, goes there and everywhere returns empty and unable to articulate and debate these trips from far yonder to us the tax payers of Domininca.
        With all these travels, boasting of money and we asked who is benefiting from this? Well, it is not us. We here of CBI money, endless money, where in Domininca has this benefit us?
        The Prime Minister and his bunch of ministers are big jokers and a waste of time to us Dominicans.

        So what you trying trying to tell us Winston? You shall be judged by the company you keep my boy. I dont know what Skerrit is up to.Probably his own wife doesn’t know but I know that Desi Bouterse was remommended to serve 20 years by a court in his own country last year for his alleged role in the murder of 15 government opponent in Dec. 1982 after he took power in a military coup.

      Shaka, whenever Linton goes on his secret hunting and begging missions i have not heard any of you asking any questions about it, so Shaka to you and many others the word is Pxxxoff and mind you all Dam business to all whom it may concern.

        Skerrit is the prime minister of Dominica and i am minding my business. Again your level of ignorance. Like he said in possi last week i am his boss we are his boss. It is every Dominican business to mind where he goes on there behalf. It is the business of every Dominican to ask no matter who is elected to lead by the people. You are a victim of the past 18 years and i feel sorry for you.

        Was it the Dominican tax payers who paid for Linton trip? If not, then they are not obligated to know his whereabouts. In this case the trip by the Prime Minister and his delegation is funded by the tax payers of Dominica therefore the tax payers ought to be informed of his whereabouts.

        It is not necessary for Linton to be asked questions because he always takes a proactive stance and informs the people of Dominica! That’s true leadership!

        Shaka, Stop making a big Capital “C” out of your self, Are you saying each time Mr Skerrit is going out of state he must ask you and a bunch of cockroaches from the so-called workers calamity party and supporters???You must be on dope guy or maybe you just came from the lab in mahaut!!!!!?

        The fact that you call people who support transperancy in public office cockroaches is the reason why Dominica is one of poorest and most corrupt nations in this hemisphere. Hope you find a brain though cause I can guarantee that there’s nothing upstairs.

        This Man bite Dogs, just writes, but I am convinced he has a one focus mind and is not used to comparative study or reading. Man, you must try seeing the bigger picture and argue, debate on its merit and Not thinking of Skerrit in your response. You are or have reduced yourself to mediocrity. Get rid of this Skerrit protection thing, it is not working, you are continuously make a fool of yourself. When are you gonna learn that you are not impressing us or convincing us, you are making a fool of yourself.Yo are in the wrong company. Wake up. It is ok to be a Labourite , but it is no ok to be political stooge and a hypocritical Labourite for the sake of Skerrit, who is a failed PM and not of the intelligentsia.

        Man and Dog…You see what I am talking about. There you go again with bind loyalty nonsense. Absolutely no substance, credibility and all you do is kick Skerrit deeper into the political abyss of a failed prime Minister. This mans name is likely yo be tarnished and people like you will be accountability for Skerrit`s demise in years to come. Man, go get a scholarship, runaway quickly to better yourself. When all has failed Skerrit and his stooges will not be there for you. Ask yourself the question, where is Skerrit`s family. Do yo think it is by accident they are in the Big Apple. You mean Domininca s that bad for them, with the level of luxury thy have to live nice…and they have you here laying Skerrit`s dirty politic. Man, run,,,run, ad stop biting Dogs.
        Keep running
