Dominica is ready to build its first international airport
Caribbean State has only two regional ports
A new airport for Dominica? Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit is sure of this, as reported during a press conference organized in the last few hours in which the Caribbean structure was discussed. Government already acquired 411 acres of land that will be used for the actual construction, moreover the same Skerrit spoke expressly of "very rapid progress" as regards the completion of the project. Going deeper into the plan, the island nation pledged to allocate $ 5 million each month, drawing money from the Citizenship By Investment (CBI) program.
It will be the first international airport in the absolute sense, given that the Commenwealth of Dominica currently has only two regional airports; this infrastructural feature forces tourists and foreign visitors to “endure” stops in Puerto Rico, Barbados, Guadeloupe or Martinique before landing in this territory which is part of the Lesser Antilles archipelago. A specific company should also be set up to supervise all work. The aforementioned CBI program has existed since 1993 and allows foreign investors and their families to obtain Dominican citizenship after making a donation to the government fund or purchasing selected properties.
