Anchorage Hotel was severely damaged by Hurricane Maria

Roseau South MP and deputy leader of the opposition United Workers Party (UWP), Joshua Francis, is seeking to revive businesses in his constituency which were destroyed by Hurricane Maria.

“Hurricane Maria did give us a blow; it affected the housing stock,” Francis lamented during the recent debate on 2019/2020 budget debate. “It has also affected the business stock in Roseau South constituency and we would like to see that central government provides the necessary assistance for the resuscitation for the Anchorage Hotel, Sisserou Hotel just to name a few,” he explained.

He highlighted the importance of these hotels because of their ability to create employment opportunities for hundreds of constituents.

“It is important not just for the Roseau South constituency but Dominica by extension, because we have to grow our own; we have to develop our entrepreneurs; we have to inspire our young entrepreneurs; we need more Egbert Charles’ and more Sukie Wisntons in the Roseau South constituency and Dominica by extension,” Francis suggested.

The parliamentary representative said in the area of agriculture they have seen a death-knell of the flower show.

“We have known that in the Giraudel area, providing a spectacle as far as the flower show is concerned, with Team Dominica United Workers Party, we will subsidize the committee [Giraudel Flower Show Committee] to ensure that we have the flower show because this is important, not only for the local economies of Eggleston and Giraudel but for the nation,” the Roseau South MP declared.
