Firstly, I would like to thank Simone Senhouse over at CaiVideos for giving me the heads up on the first ever Dominica International Conference which was held in New York on April 25.
The conference drew hundreds of participants with thousands following the proceedings, which was carried live by Q95 FM over the internet via audio and video.
Organized under the progress and unity banner, participants heard from a group of distinguished panelists from the Diaspora including Shirley Allan, Dr. Sam Christian, Gabriel Christian, Thomson Fontaine, Ken Vital, Hendrix Pierre and Lennox Linton. With regards to economic development the conference focused on the need to harness Dominicaâ€™s renewable and natural resources including geothermal energy, water resources and fertile agricultural land for the advancement of the Dominican people.
Here are some video highlights from the first ever Dominica International Conference:
Mr. Gabrielle Christian – Speaking on how we can each play a part in making Dominica Successful.
Dr. Thomson Fontaine – Speaking on what we have to offer as Dominicans at home and in the Diaspora.
Mr. Lennox Linton – Speaking on the right to Free Press in Dominica.
