A call has been issued to Dominicans living in Antigua to consider returning home to take up jobs which will be made available in the hotel sector.
This appeal was made by Prime Minster Hon. Roosevelt Skerrit during a political rally held in Antigua on Sunday while speaking on the construction of a number of hotels which he says will transform Dominica’s landscape.
“You can book your room in Dominica this upcoming tourist season. We have a five star 161 rooms resort in Dominica opening in October of 2019. We have a 133 room’s marina under construction. We have also a Hilton under construction; we will be expanding the Secret Bay by 42 villas and we have also signed an agreement for 70 villas in the mountains of Laudat and in the next week this government will sign a contract for a new hotel adjacent the current Kempinski hotel; it will be a 100 rooms,” he made known.
If predictions are accurate, within the next 36 months Dominica is on path to “have the most modern tourism infrastructure in the Caribbean.”
In light of this, Hon Skerrit urged, “to the Dominicans here in Antigua and Barbuda I will need you to come home to help me run these hotels and those resorts. You have gained tremendous experience over the years here in Antigua and Dominica needs you now to run and manage these hotels for us.”
