Formally, the island is called the Commonwealth of Dominica and is also known as Waitukubuli (meaning, tall is her body), the name given to this deeply forested island by its indigenous people, the Kalinagos.

The wonders of Dominica do not cease in her greenery, lush vegetation and tamed animal kingdom. Culture connects with nature to add richness to life in Dominica. Culture manifests itself in the stride of the humble Dominican, his friendly smile, Creole dances, wear and art forms. Dominica’s heritage and history are embedded in the Creole language, the living testimony of the struggle among European nations to conquer the island and of a sad past of African slavery. Dominican language embodies the life, soul and thoughts of a people who continue to strive for success without compromising the values of equality, liberty, justice and democracy and while nurturing the island’s natural splendor and resources for generations to come.

The legal system of Dominica is based on Common Law. The island is a republic and has a president as its head of state. The state is divided into the three branches which consist of an executive, a legislature and a judiciary which maintains effective separation of powers. Dominica became an independent nation in 1978. From since then, Dominica has boasted stable government and continues to promote its principles of democracy, liberty and peace. Dominica is led by a Prime Minister who has a cabinet of elected and non elected members. Elections are held once every five years.

The Dominica Economic Citizenship Program began in 1991. The aim of the program is to create a means by which investments can be made in Dominica and qualify individuals and families to apply for Dominica citizenship provided that they have had positive due diligence investigation results. Dominica second citizenship is for life.

The Dominica Economic Citizenship program is administered through a few firms such as CCP Inc. that are licensed to operate as agents for economic citizenship. These agents are required to follow all standard procedures and due diligence measures to maintain the integrity of the program. In addition to a successful economic citizenship program, Dominica is a mature offshore haven, and we provide a wide range of offshore financial services as well.

Dominica’s economy is based mainly on tourism and agriculture. Most of Dominica’s tourism is based on ecotourism because of the abundant natural resources and beautiful heritage sights on the island. Dominica’s economy is one of the most stable in the Caribbean.
