President of Dominica, Charles Angelo SavarinPresident of Dominica, Charles Angelo Savarin has called on Dominicans, both here and abroad to put their differences aside and work together for the development of the country.
He made that call while giving his first address as President of Dominica in his second term, after being elected and sworn in last week.
President Savarin stated that although the country has progressed since the destruction of Hurricane Maria last year, there is still a lot of work to be done as the country works to become the first climate resilient nation.
“Maria totally destroyed all that we have built over the years. We have come a long way since that frightful morning, but there is still a lot to be done. But we are committed in our determination to rebuild even better and stronger and to make Dominica the first climate resilient country in the world.
President Savarin further added that Dominicans around the world should put aside all differences, religious and political beliefs and work together to further develop the country.
He noted that while the road ahead is going to be challenging, Dominicans have shown in the past that they are up to task, adding that “to succeed at this task however, we have to embrace each other as fellow Dominicans.”
“We have to set aside our differences whether they are religious or political, whether we live at home here in Dominica or abroad in the diaspora; whether we support the Government or opposed to it, we must work together for the benefit, reconstruction and further development of Dominica,” President Savarin added.
