Invest Dominica Authority recently collaborated with the Chambers of Commerce of Guadeloupe and Martinique to present a Business Seminar to companies in the French West Indies (FWI).  The one hour webinar was done online via zoom and attracted close to 100 attendees on Thursday, June 3, 2021.  The panellists at the event were the Executive director of Invest Dominica Authority Ms. Rhoda Joseph, Vice President of the Dominica Chamber of Industry and Commerce Mr. Brenton Hilaire and the French Honorary Consul Mr. Herve Nizard.  The main presentation was done by Mrs. Hermina Augustine, Senior Investment Promotion Officer at Invest Dominica.  The participants benefitted from information which covered:

  • The post-pandemic status of Dominica in 2021
  • Invest Dominica and its new National Investment Strategy
  • Top sectors with opportunities and new projects
  • The business environment in Dominica
  • Reasons to do business in Dominica
  • How to register a company

This is the first of a series of webinars which will be organized over the coming months.  IDA normally executes annual investment and media missions to the FWI.  These are structured to share information on investment opportunities, promote sectors of interest and do site visits  to various French companies.  Since the pandemic in 2020, the Authority has not been able to execute physical missions and events overseas.  The event ended in a very interactive question and answer segment.  Attendees were also given the opportunity to complete a survey, the results of which will be able to gauge their interests in a mission to Dominica in 2022 and areas of business interests.
