Govt. setting stage for more regional visitors to Dominica 

DOMINICA continues to punch through regional challenges with air connections to attract more tourists from non-traditional markets, especially during its annual World Creole Festival (WCF).

Following a COVID-induced hiatus, the five-day Festival returned last year with a ‘bang’ that had seen more than 7,000 tourists visiting the island.

For some tourism enthusiasts, that number may seem small, but it was approximately 10 percent of the number of visitors who visit the territory on an annual basis.

That, in and of itself, brings significant economic benefits not just for the Government but also small businesses including car rental agencies, hotels and AirBnB spots.

In his analysis of the numbers, Colin Piper, the Director of Discover Dominica Authority (DDA) – the tourism authority – stated that many of those who travelled to the island for the event were from neighbouring islands, and non-traditional market locations.
