“This is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the UK’s strengths in business, culture and education and to re-energise our relationships with all our partners in Dominica – government, businesses and civil society. On a personal note I’m really looking forward to visiting this beautiful island again and am very glad that we’re having our first ‘Brit Week’ in Dominica” said British High Commissioner to Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean, Victoria Dean.
