New Zealand’s High Commissioner to Dominica His Excellency Anton Mark Ojala presented his credentials to President of the Commonwealth of Dominica Charles A. Savarin on Wednesday January 30, 2019 at a small ceremony at the State House.
The New High Commissioner says he looks forward to working closely with the Dominican Government to developing joint climate goals through building climate resilience.
“It is the opportunities we have to work together to advance our shared climate objectives in areas like greenhouse gas emissions reductions and if it’s to reduce ocean certifications and marine plastic waste that potentially offer us in the international community the greatest and most important gains. Your Excellency I look forward to working with you and your Government to achieve this and continuing the work of my predecessor to advance the relationship between our countries.”
Dominica’s head of state says he is looking forward to working with New Zealand in minimizing the negative impacts of Climate Change as well as advancing Dominica’s Geothermal Project.
“I am therefore pleased to note that New Zealand remains committed to the geothermal development project on Dominica, and look forward to advancing our shared climate change objectives as we chart a course for development which minimizes negative impacts on our environment.”
New Zealand is a sovereign island country in the Southwestern Pacific Ocean which ranks highly in international comparisons of national performance, such as quality of life, health, education, protection of civil liberties, and economic freedom.
