Minister for Tourism, Hon. Denise Charles says the development of an International Airport in Wesley will create several job opportunities for Dominicans.
She said approximately 3,000 jobs will be created from the development of the international airport.
During parliament, she stated that she considers the project the most transformative in Dominica’s 43 years of existence as it will also open a gateway for tourism and trade.
The Minister again issued a call to the youth of Dominica to position themselves to take advantage of the many jobs that will be created following the completion of the international airport. She stated that they need air traffic controllers, safety officers, engineers, mechanics, electricians, etc.
Charles also said the Ministry of Tourism is already working steadfastly to ensure that by the time the international airport is complete, Dominica will be a destination of choice for visitors.
