The Project will help the country take the nation’s tourism and hospitability sector of the country to great heights. PM Skerrit toured the facility alongside the members of the government, including Minister of Tourism, Denise Charles.

He highlighted that there are not many resorts that can come close to the Tranquility beach resort, especially in terms of its offerings. The rooms of the resorts will be self-sufficient with laundry services.

The resort will also have tree houses which give the resort a nice twist, attracting more tourists to the location. As per the Prime Minister, the project will be completed and open for the public in 2025.

He added that this will be the only property in Dominica, which will offer such a unique blend of guest accommodation and guest offering. The country will get more sustainable revenue from the project as tourism footfall will increase.

Along with the tourist footfall, service consumption and VAT income will also give the economy of Dominica a significant boost. The Prime Minister highlighted that the Tranquility Beach Resort and other tourism projects progressing within the nation are sustainable projects.

He believes that these projects will bring the kind of revenues that the country needs. He reasoned that they have to broaden the revenue options for the nation through these measures. This is because you cannot tax the resident population to an extent

Accordingly, to combat this situation the government has to figure out a way to bring people in to consume the services and products offered by Dominica. This will help in increasing the tax income of the government.

Every tourist who comes to Dominica pays the VAT on accommodation, food and beverage. Accordingly, everywhere the tourist goes and spends he contributes to the nation’s economy.

Dr Skerrit highlighted that members of the cabinet, government officials and  permanent secretaries of the government are checking on the progress of the construction constantly. The government of Dominica is dedicated to ensuring that the project can conclude successfully.
