The Government of Dominica has announced that it has finalized plans to construct a new climate resilient, smart hospital in the community of Marigot.
“We have finalised on our end all of the documents… to submit to the Government of Mexico and we are very grateful to them for their continued commitment, and so we look forward to advancing the construction of this hospital that is needed even more now than prior to Hurricane Maria,” Hon Skerrit said.
