Photo credit: GIS NewsIndian High Commissioner to Dominica Mala Mishra said the Nature Isle is the ideal country to market a new form of tourism that has the potential to boost the struggling sector.Mishra said India is willing to partner with Dominica in that regard.He said a delegation could soon visit Dominica to discuss ways to get the initiative off the ground.“We use a lot of humble plants to generate medicines and we make medicines, we produce them in India and export them in large quantities. We also run medical tourism or wellness tourism where we offer a lot of treatments in spas. I think Dominica could be an ideal location in the Caribbean to market wellness tourism and you can add that as a very important tourism product in Dominica and you can really do well,” he said.Mishra said plans are underway to bring a delegation from India to identify the plants to start the project.“The delegation will develop some kind of laboratory and then manufacture the plants not only to be used in Dominica but other parts of the region,” Mishra added.
