Dominica Strengthens Diplomatic Relations with Bangladesh

The Caribbean nation of Dominica established diplomatic relations with Bangladesh at the end of 2020. The agreement will benefit both countries in different aspects of mutual interest.

Signed in New York by the Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Bangladesh to the United Nations, Rabab Fatima, along with Permanent Representative of Dominica to the United Nations, Loreen Ruth Bannis-Roberts, this agreement and the relations it has cultivated, are set to drive both countries towards greater prosperity and security. 

This agreement facilitates the expansion of the export market and increases employment opportunities. It will also address several economic, political, social, cultural, scientific and humanitarian issues.

Similarly, with a focus on climate resilience, Dominica has made great strides in recent years. Following a devastating hurricane in 2017, the country executed an action plan to ensure the Commonwealth of Dominica was well-prepared should another disaster strike the Caribbean island.

Dominica is an island lying between the French overseas territories of Guadeloupe and Martinique.

In March 2018, the Climate Resilience Execution Agency for Dominica (CREAD), funded by Canada, Dominica and the United Kingdom, was launched. 

The 4-year mandate was aimed at driving the country towards becoming the world’s first climate-resilient nation. By developing and implementing a full Climate Resilience and Recovery Plan (CRRP) entailing large complex reconstruction efforts.

  1. Strong Communities
  2. Robust Economy
  3. Well-planned and Durable Infrastructure
  4. Enhanced Collective Consciousness
  5. Strengthened Institutional Systems

Dominica Citizenship by Investment Program

The program is based on the law and is guaranteed by the government since 1993.

Why is visa-free travel so important?

Visa-free travel is the capability to visit a country without having to complete lengthy visa applications. Nationals of a country can travel visa-free to another country if the governments of both countries have signed a visa-waiver agreement to that effect, or if the receiving country unilaterally opened its borders.
