Tourism sector has been developing slower than on neighbouring islands due to its volcanic landscape and fewer beaches. However, there are great opportunities to develop eco-tourism and attract nature lovers that come to Dominica every year to see its exceptionally beautiful flora and fauna.

Agricultural sector. Bananas remain the principal crop but the government realised that it needs to diversify this sector and offer other agricultural products. Around one third of the workforce is employed in this sector. At the same time the economy cannot solely rely on agriculture as it is highly exposed to weather conditions and external events.

Financial services is a fast growing sector with offshore banking at its core. Dominica has managed to improve transparency and information exchange procedures which makes it a trustworthy jurisdiction. It is becoming a major international financial hub with payment processing and corporate services providers generating the main part of its income.

Dominica’s Government is in the process of building the world’s first climate-resilient nation. It is calling for foreign investors to contribute in the development of sustainable and robust industries and infrastructure. This is a unique chance for anyone to implement the latest technologies and solutions.
