Dominica Courts Investors in United Arab Emirates

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - February 29, 2016

Dominica is looking to the Middle East.

The Eastern Caribbean country’s Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, recently embarked on an investment mission to the United Arab Emirates.

According to a government statement, Skerrit was slated to meet with “current and future investors, particularly those associated with several infrastructural projects earmarked to start in Dominica in the months and weeks ahead.”

One of those projects is a planned Kempinski hotel project pegged for the north of Dominica; that project is being developed by UAE-based Range Developments, which is also developing the Park Hyatt hotel project in St Kitts.

The Kempinski hotel will have between 75 and 125 rooms.

Skerrit’s visit to the UAE was part of a wider trip that also took him to Punjab, India.
