According to Countryaah, the capital of Dominica is Roseau. In May 2007, an agreement was signed on military cooperation and coordination between the United States Coast Guard in Florida and the Regional Security System in the Caribbean. Established in the mid-1980’s following the US invasion and occupation of Grenada in 1983, the security system consists of 7 states in the Caribbean.
In August 2007, Dominica was ravaged by Hurricane Dean, which destroyed much of the island’s banana plantations and infrastructure. At the same time as the country lost the EU’s trade preferences, it implemented a diversification of its agricultural production and exports. It began to produce coffee, aloe vera, flowers, mangoes, guava and papaya.
In January 2008, Dominica joined Venezuela’s Bolivarian System of America (ALBA).
