While addressing a Good Governance forum on Monday, the Real Labour Party’s representative Washway Douglas highlighted some of the RLP’s strategies to move Dominica forward.

Notwithstanding the clean and green policy and the Renewable Energy Program, Mr Douglas firmly believes the country’s name should be changed from Dominica to ‘Waitukubuli’ the name given by the indigenous people of the country.

Douglas says this is in an effort to lessen the inconvenience of being mistaken for the Dominican Republic and also to help reduce the costs of advertisements made in efforts to clarify that Dominica is not the Dominican Republic.

The RLP is also looking to introduce the concept of Natural Resources being linked to Nationalism, and that the country’s natural resources should be owned by Dominican citizens for the benefit of Dominica and its citizens.

The RLP Coordinator also spoke of building closer relations with the neighboring islands of Martinique and Guadeloupe. He says while the present administration speaks of creating closer links with CARICOM which he fully endorses, greater emphasis needs to be placed on developing tighter links with Guadeloupe and Martinique.

But are these the type of strategies Dominica needs presently to take it forward as a country? Share your thoughts in the comments.

However, it’s not just the wider business world that has been hit by the economic downturn – the whole Caribbean have been affected too, both on a local and national scale.

The ungoing protests in Guadeloupe and Martinique in recent weeks have highlighted how difficult some people are finding it to cope with the effects of the financial crisis. Across the entire Caribbean, people have been forced to adjust their budgets and lifestyles.
