(Dominica News Online) Just days after the Duke of Edinburg’s funeral and burial, the Prince of Wales, His Royal Highness Prince Charles, on Friday, April 23, chaired a virtual round table meeting focusing on: ‘Accelerating Economic Recovery and
Sustainable Markets,’ among Small Islands States (SIDs), in response to disasters and global crisis.
Dominica’s Prime Minister, Hon. Roosevelt Skerrit joined other CARICOM Heads to discuss specific ways that the Commonwealth could demonstrate its unity, high ambition and solutions-orientation to protect the environment, and to identify outstanding barriers and the actions required to unlock acceleration in areas of risk capital, incentives,
concessional and blended financing among other areas post disasters.
Presenting on the topic: “Accelerating a sustainable Transition Across the Decade,” Prime Minister Skerrit told the meeting that: “Rebuilding after each disaster requires significant financial resources. While we thank partners like the United Kingdom who provide support after various events, inevitably our Governments have to borrow, to begin the rebuilding process.
