We recently improved our airport infrastructure in Dominica and work still continues on the runway. It is a welcoming change from a few years ago. I look at islands like Tortola or the entire British Virgin Islands, St. Baths and Anguilla which do not have an international airport but have continued capturing investments, offshore business and a growing tourism industry. What does that say for us where everyday people say that an international airport is the answer to our tourism product and foreign direct investment?
For some countries it may have been the answer, for many small islands in the Caribbean, an international airport has been the nightmare of the highest maintenance expense ever created and the infrastructure with the lowest returns economically. What Dominica needs right now is convenient and reliable island access for the investor. This will include night landing up to 8.00pm, additional small flights and sea access which can put us on par with many of the other big wigs. Our problems will be addressed once we bring in the ferries, private charters, and other small jets from the connecting hubs. At this point we will be ready to accommodate all levels and types of entrepreneurs in the investing world.
