Minister of Business Dominic Gaskin recently met with the newly formed Mahdia Chamber of Commerce and Industry when he was in Region Eight.
During the meeting the Chairman David Adams raised several concerns, including training of Regional Councillors; the need for a separate building to house the court; the need for GRA/NIS/Deeds Registry offices in the area or a regularly scheduled outreach (quarterly); and a clearly identified process for land allocation within the region.
Minister Gaskin while addressing the concerns advised the chambers to work on projects affecting the Mahdia business community across the board and to find solutions as much as practicable. The Minister also pledged the Ministry’s support in possible areas of collaboration with the chambers.
Gaskin further stressed that the government is interested in sustainable long-term economic development driven by private enterprise and that increasing value-added productivity is a priority of the current administration when it comes to business.
