Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit has said that the government hopes to access technical assistance from the World Bank in its plans to construct an international airport in Dominica.
“Clean and cheaper energy is also an important factor in our plans for an International Airport,” Skerrit stated during a recent signing ceremony between Dominica and the World Bank for the financing of the Geothermal Development Project.
He continued, “We are moving full steam ahead with these plans.”
The prime minister said the World Bank has had field missions here in Dominica in the hope of designing a project geared at improvement and resilience in air transportation.
“Central to this project we hope will be the possibility of accessing the technical capacity that government requires to manage, administer and implement the International Airport Project,” he stated.
