Sineku Resource Centre
It was just under one (1) year ago that we assembled here to witness the signing of contracts to undertake the construction of forty one (41) new houses in the Carib Territory, funded by the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, at a total cost of EC$2.2 million.
Today history is being created and the Sineku Resource Centre is once again the venue where we are launching yet another major project aimed at bringing further development to the residents of the Carib Territory and by extension the people of Dominica.
Ladies and Gentlemen I must pause here to extend special thanks to the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) for their interest in funding the Carib Territory Community Capacity Building Project. This is the largest single infrastructural investment to date in the Carib Territory at a cost of EC$8.6 million. The CDB is a great friend of the Government and people of Dominica. They stood by our side during our most difficult times. Please convey our very best wishes and gratitude to the President and staff of the CDB.
