Roseau, Dominica – September 1, 2009……… The Cabinet of Prime Minister, Hon. Roosevelt Skerrit is embarking on a new round of Town Hall Meetings as part of its well established policy of engaging the public on a regular basis on issues of national development.
The first meeting will take place today, Tuesday, September 1, 2009 at Classic International in Marigot. Other meetings are planned for Dublanc on Friday evening, followed by Maune Jaune Riviere Cyrique at the Community Centre on Monday, September 7th and Roseau on Wednesday, September 9, 2009 at the Baracoon building. All meetings will commence at 7.30pm.
The Town Hall Meetings have proved invaluable as members of the public have the opportunity to dialogue directly with members of Cabinet on issues of concern to them.
This new round of Town Hall Meetings will also present the opportunity for the Prime Minister and other Members of Cabinet to elaborate further on the initiatives and projects currently being implemented across the country. The impact of the global financial and economic crisis on the Dominican economy will also form part of the dialogue with the residents of Marigot and the surrounding areas.
