Roseau, Mar 27 (Prensa Latina) – Venezuelan tourists started to fill hotel facilities of Dominica Thursday as part of an initiative implemented by the governments of Dominica and Venezuela to strengthen their bilateral relations. The initial group recently concluded a stay of a week in this capital, formed by 33 people travelling under a social tourism program agreed by the two nations.
Besides visiting tourist places, Venezuelan visitors were received by Dominica’s Prime Minister Roosevelt Skeritt, who told them about the importance of exchange between the two countries.
To keep the agreement active, Venezuela established a weekly flight of airline CONVIASA to Dominica, which will take the next group to Roseau next Tuesday.
The two countries established diplomatic relations in 1979, but collaboration has deepened during the government of President Hugo Chavez.
