VESSEL REGISTRATION FOR DOMINICA

A GUIDE TO THE INTERNATIONAL SHIP REGISTRIES
THE COMMONWEALTH OF DOMINICA

Located between the islands of Martinique and Guadeloupe, Dominica is well deserving of its status as the Nature Island of the Caribbean, with the lush tropical rainforests and 365 rivers coursing over 290 square miles of breathtaking terrain. An environmental mindset (The national motto is " After God, the Earth") has preserved the beauty of this island, which is popular ecotourism destination that remains unspoiled by the commercialism that has overrun other Caribbean countries.

Twenty-nine miles long and sixteen miles across at its widest point, the island is home to 89,000 residents, including 3,000 Carib Indians, descendants of the island's original inhabitants. European eyes first sighted Dominica on a Sunday in 1493. Later, the English and the French alternately owned the island. A British colony until 1967, Dominica was granted full independence November 3, 1978.

As a commonwealth, it operates on a parliamentary system, with the prime minister, chosen with the majority party, as a chief executive; the president serves as ceremonial head of state. Its capital is the port city of Roseau; Portsmouth is a second active port.

Agriculture is the mainstay of the Dominica economy, with bananas as the chief crop, along with citrus, mangoes, root crops, and coconuts. Its manufacturing industry produces soap, coconut oil, copra, furniture, cement blocks, and shoes. Major trading partners are the United Kingdom, the United States, Netherlands, and Canada.

Dominica's political stability, lack of corporate or capital gains taxes, open trade and payments systems, and superior communications systems are among its most appealing draws for investors.
