    Dominica Transnational Issues - 2006
    https://theodora.com/wfbcurrent/dominica/dominica_issues.html
    SOURCE: 2006 CIA WORLD FACTBOOK

      Disputes - international:
      Dominica is the only Caribbean state to challenge Venezuela's sovereignty claim over Aves Island and joins the other island nations in challenging whether the feature sustains human habitation, a criterion under the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), which permits Venezuela to extend its Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) and continental shelf claims over a large portion of the Caribbean Sea

      Illicit drugs:
      transshipment point for narcotics bound for the US and Europe; minor cannabis producer; anti-money-laundering enforcement is weak, making the country particularly vulnerable to money laundering
