Experts from Venezuela head to Dominica to assist with load shedding issues

A team of experts from Venezuela is due in Dominica today as consumers grapple with a series of load shedding in response to limitations of the equipment at the Dominica Electricity Services Company Limited. 
Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit told a news conference that he held talks with Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro in Cuba last week with a view to providing whatever support to address the issue in the immediate and medium term.
A St Lucian-based expert will also provide assistance. 
In May last year, the Dominica government announced that it had acquired the majority shares in the island's electricity company following discussions that began a year ago with a Canadian-based energy company.
