ABOUT THE COUNTRY

The island of Dominica is situated in the Lesser Antilles, in the West Indies. It is among the larger islands of the group. Known as the "Nature Island," is filled with wonders of nature, with many rare plants and animals, and 350 rivers, and numerous hiking paths crisscrossing the islands. The residents say there are 'more mountains than people' on the island, which has many volcanoes, active and dormant. The world's second-largest hot spring called "Boiling Lake" is also located here.

Dominica is a peaceful and politically stable state, which gained independence from Britain in 1978. It is one of the few Republics in the Caribbean with a democratically elected government.

Dominica is also a member of the Organisation of the Eastern Caribbean States and the Caribbean Development Bank. In 1978, it joined the United Nations and International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Bank, and the Organization of American States the following year, giving it in good standing in the world community.

Dominica benefits from the Caribbean Basin Initiative that grants duty-free trade with the US for goods and services and developing as an international financial center, with strong offshore banking and payment processing.
