Minister for Environment, Climate Resilience, Disaster Management and Urban Renewal, Honorable Joseph Isaac says Dominicans have much to be thankful for especially in light of the recovery post Hurricane Maria.
The Minister stated that citizens of Dominica should celebrate the progress that the country has made, under the guidance of the Government, in the two years since the passage of Hurricane Maria.
“We in Dominica have every reason to celebrate. Dominica has been in the world’s spotlight since the passage of Hurricane Maria two years ago. We continue to be so, especially given the fact that the efforts and the pace of our recovery have surpassed all expectations and we are now the envy of the world. We are being looked upon as a model for resilience, and the whole world is watching as we pursue the development path to make Dominica the first climate resilience nation in the world,” Honorable Isaac stated.
Honorable Isaac added that there is a need to expand national efforts in culture and cultural heritage.
“It requires that our artists, our musicians and people who are all involved in the cultural industry to take advantage of the new opportunities that your Government is making available for the tourism sector. We therefore need to promote our cultural heritage, our creole culture, and leave our lives as creole people. Not merely at Independence time but throughout the day, every day throughout the year,” the Minister added.
