Dominica Names New Tourism Director

The small Caribbean island of Dominica officially has a new face to go with its new campaign to promote itself as an eco-tourism destination, a marketing strategy that Travel Agent has been covering. The Honorable Ian Douglas has been appointed minister for tourism, legal affairs and civil aviation, effective October 22, following Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit's reorganization of his cabinet.

Serving as parliamentary representative for the Portsmouth constituency, Douglas plans to draw on his past experience, particularly that as attorney general and minister for legal affairs and immigration, to build tourism. Douglas is the public relations officer of the Northern Football Organizing Committee and sponsors a number of local sports teams. In addition, he is the patron of the island's juvenile soccer academy and is constructing a children's playground in his community. Visit (JP)
