Dominica wants EU to remove visa requirements for nationals travelling to Europe

Dominica says it is pursuing efforts to get the European Union to remove the visa requirements for nationals travelling to Europe, saying that it was important to stimulate trade under the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) signed with Europe five years ago.



Junior Foreign Affairs Minister Alvin Bernard said Dominica has joined several countries in making the request.



Dominica and other countries of the Caribbean Forum (CARIFORUM) signed the EPA in October 2008 that also provides substantial EU aid for trade.
