She was in Dominica for the swearing-in ceremony of PM Roosevelt’s cabinet on Tuesday.

While delivering remarks, PM Mottley said “I want to say to the people of Dominica – you have been through turmoil; you have been through more than most on this earth can even contemplate – that the people of Dominica stand tall today, stand resilient, it is a matter of pride, Prime Minister Skerrit not just for you in Dominica, but is a matter of pride for us all.”

 "Dominica has borne the brunt of what the world has foisted on us, in respect to climate crisis. Even so, you dusted it off, you have stood up again and you have said we are ready to continue the battle for our people," she stated.

Prime Minister Mottley said the public life of Barbados is not only to make a better life for the people of Barbados but to work in solidarity with the people of the Caribbean and it is for this reason I have come today to share with you in this moment of renewal and reaffirmation.
