The Hon Member of Parliament for the Salybia constituency, Casius Darroux, is pleased that Government has demonstrated commitment to the development of his constituency.
Hon Darroux lauded the Dominica Labour Party administration for exhibiting real interest in the well-being of his people. Speaking at Parliament recently, he highlighted the significant investment Government has made in his constituents in education, housing, health, sanitation, social support and community development.
The Kalinago Affairs minister described the 2017/2018 budget as a ‘budget for the people.’ He says this budget is geared towards empowering people by creating opportunities for all.
Government has allocated $600,00 to the ministry of Kalinago Affairs for small business development.
“I’m hoping that all citizens despite of their colours can take advantage of the small business unit... and I’m encouraging my Kalinago people and the residents of Atkinson and Antrizle to also tap in to ensure that they get some form assistance from the small business unit,” he encouraged.
Hon Darroux also used the opportunity to announced the construction of a $100,000 Sineku classroom block which will commence in this new financial year.
