The Republic of Dominica in the Caribbean, receives a large amount of its revenue from the tourist industry. Every year thousands of Frenchmen seek escape from the chills of a European winter and flee to the Dominican Republic. For those who can afford a holiday there, the warm sun and palm-fringed beaches provide a welcome relief from a bleak, winter-bound Paris.

The two Prime Ministers were reported to have discussed the construction of a multi-million pound sporting complex in the Dominican Republic.
