The island of Dominica is discovered by Christopher Columbus. A Caribbean island known for 750 square kilometres of natural beauty, Dominica is covered in precious, lush rainforest—a UNESCO World heritage site—and is home to the world’s second largest hot spring. Tourists, and of course residents, enjoy the hundreds of streams, stunning coastlines, and vibrant coral reefs. The population of approximately 73,000 uses the East Caribbean Dollar (XCD). While the official language is English, other spoken languages include Antillean Creole and French.

The main export items of the Commonwealth of Dominica are agricultural including bananas, cocoa, coffee and fruits. Rum, timber and soap are some of the main driver of the economy.
