Dominica’s Prime Minister Dr Roosevelt Skerrit says a contract for the development and construction of an international airport on the island – funded by its citizenship by investment programme – will be signed before the end of May.
The agreement was reviewed by the government and will be signed by the Government of Dominica and Montreal Management Consultants Establishment Limited (MMCE).
“Cabinet met on Wednesday 19 May 2021 to consider the draft principle agreement for the construction of Dominica International Airport,” said PM Skerrit.
“I must report that the Cabinet, with some amendments, approved the agreement to construct the international airport for Dominica. The agreement will be signed between the government and Montreal Management Consultants to develop and construct the international airport, using the financing mechanism of the Citizenship by Investment program.”
“I believe this is an important step for the country. We have all been trying to build an international airport for our country since the 40s and now we are well on our way to achieving this dream for Dominica.
“We look forward to signing this agreement by the end of May 2021 so that the next steps can be taken towards the realisation of our international airport.”
PM Skerrit said the largest infrastructure project in the history of our Dominica would help define the future prosperity of the country.
