Compete Caribbean OECS Project. Final report
From the document:
The private sector assessment (PSA) for Dominica draws on primary data analysis from interviews with key stakeholders from the domestic private and public sectors as well as interviews with regional and international agencies. In addition, secondary data was utilised to describe the state of the country at both the micro and macro levels...
The private sector within the Commonwealth of Dominica can flourish if the correct mechanisms are put in place. In 2010, real GDP stood at 2.5 times its 1984 value. On a per capita basis, the island ranked 10th amongst all comparators in this regard (US$12,266) and maintained an average annual growth rate of 3% with slight variability. The level of inflation on the island is relatively low.
The average annual rate stood at 2.6% when compared to 8.6% in the benchmark grouping. In addition to this, the current annual change in prices was 2.4% which could be attributed to fluctuations in food and energy prices on the international market.
