Experience Dominica – The Nature Island: Dominica Vacations | Exotic Vacations | Honeymoon Destination

Dominica weekly is a personal weblog about the nature island of Dominica.


Leaders from around the Organisation of East Caribbean States (OECS) was recently in St. Kitts/Nevis to officially append their signatures to documents intended to transform the OECS into an Economic Union in the effort to deepen integration between the participating countries, and has the potential to bring together a group of very small countries.

Advertised as the financial saviour of the OECS, especially now, when countries like ours need to come up with creative ideas to keep their economies afloat.

The Union presents an opportunity to pool resources as far as the best financial minds and a way forward in these Unfathomable Times. This a great opportunity presented for an exchange of data and other information leading to the transformation of the islands as a unit and as individual territories as well.

But why get involved in any situation when one stands to lose much more than it can gain? Our leaders believe they have to preserve what maintains in the OECS, in their wisdom, sought to determine that is best for the people, and we must give them every opportunity to try and make the union work for once it does, the benefits will certainly be felt here in Dominica and in the wider Caribbean.

What are your thoughts on the newly established OECS Economic Union? Let us know in the comments.

Our region appears to be one of those few places where politicians can normally get away with doing as little as possible for their constituents.

The politicians who are elected by the people seem to rarely find they have any need to ensure that they can give, at least, a good account of their stewardship as far as effectively taking care of the business of the people is concerned.

Instead, they become arrogant with power and making sure people know that they are in charge and that they do what they feel to be necessary for things to happen.

There is the school of thought that some people depend so much on politicians for small handouts that they would not and could not dare to demand more of the representatives.

If this is the case then our tiny nature isle is faced with very serious problems indeed. Until Dominicans understand what the role of the people elected to political office really is, and that they are in a position to demand better and more on their behalf.

Sadly, until such time, the development of the country in question will continue to lag dangerously behind others whose people have gotten a real grasp of good governance and are aspiring so to do.

The global financial crisis has meant that many of us (Dominicans) have had to watch the pennies and cents. We are not spending money like we used to, and buying that extra pair of shoes or must-have gadget takes a lot more consideration – well for some of us. But is this a bad thing?

Is having less money changing our small island values and our behaviour? Are we becoming less materialistic and is it possible that this financial crisis could actually be good for us?

But has these hard times made you look at what you value and have you changed your spending habit as a result? Do you think that there could be some positives to be taken from the crisis?
