The Government of Dominica has committed to construct an administrative building in the town of Portsmouth.
During a town hall meeting in Portsmouth recently, the Hon Prime Minister, Dr. Roosevelt Skerrit, said this will facilitate residents of Portsmouth and environs wishing to do business with the Government.
“This is a town in Dominica, and if it’s a town in Dominica, then it must have appropriate Government offices here in the town of Portsmouth and people must know they can go to a central spot where they can acquire Government services,” Hon Skerrit said.
Hon Skerrit says that Government will be working closely with the Dominica Social Security to look at the prospects of building this administrative building.
The nation’s leader listed additional Government’s offices which will be located in the administrative building.
He said it is anticipated that the building will have an office for the Prime Minister “so there is no need for you to go to Roseau to see the Prime Minister, he will come there from time to time for an office in Portsmouth.”
The building is also anticipated to include a sub-treasury, Dominica Social Security office as well as all other government offices, the post office and an office for the parliamentary representative.
The Dominica Labour Party Government has held numerous town hall meetings in various communities across the island to sensitize the public on ongoing projects financed by the Citizenship by Investment Programme.
