French Caribbean departments focus on integration

The closer integration of French Caribbean departments with non-French speaking countries and territories in the region is the focus of a conference in Guadeloupe this week.

The first conference of this nature, called Forum FDA (French Departments of the Americas), is slated for November 30 to December 2, 2011, at Université des Antillles et de la Guyane (UAG) in Pointe-à-Pitre, Guadeloupe, in the French West Indies.

    I note Dominica is not mentioned among the countries participating. The French islands are important to Dominica’s economy and development (tourism, health, music, and energy). I hope common sense and foresight will prevail and the Govt sends someone to represent Dominica at this most important event.
