From The President
Dear Members, and Potential Members, of the Chamber of Commerce, As the President of this esteemed organization, I would like to extend my warmest welcome to every one of you. The Chamber of Commerce is an association for businesses of all sizes and industries in the private sector, and we are dedicated to pursuing economic growth and prosperity in Dominica. I would like to take a moment to recognize and thank our key stakeholders who have supported us throughout the years. Our local government officials, community leaders, local, regional, and international NGOs, the Government of Dominica and other organizations have been instrumental in helping us achieve our goals to date. Their support and collaboration have enabled us to make a positive impact on the economy and private sector. As we move forward, we must continue to work together to overcome the challenges facing our businesses. The pandemic, wars and inflation have caused unprecedented disruptions in the way we do business, and we must be adaptive and innovative in finding solutions to these challenges. At the same time, we must also look for the opportunities in our market, both existing and emerging, that once pursued, can help elevate our businesses in the private sector. The Chamber of Commerce is committed to providing our members with the tools, resources, support and insight into potential opportunities that they need to succeed. We offer a variety of programs and services, such as networking and collaboration opportunities, business advocacy, education and training programs, advertising and discovery of opportunities services to help businesses thrive. To our potential members, I urge you to join us in this mission. By becoming a member of the Chamber of Commerce, you will have access to a vast network of like-minded individuals and organizations who are dedicated to advancing the private sector. You will also have the opportunity to contribute to the growth and development of our Country. To our existing members, I want to thank you for your continued support and participation in our organization. Your commitment to the Chamber of Commerce, and the private sector by extension, is an inspiration to us all. In conclusion, I would like to reiterate our commitment to promoting economic growth and prosperity in our country. Together, we can overcome the challenges facing our businesses and create a brighter future for Dominica. Thank you for your continued support, and I look forward to working with you all in the years to come. Please also feel free to reach out to us at the Chamber if there are any ways that we can be of service to you. I can be reached at 767-615-7914 or 767-275-6605 or email@example.com.
