Minister for Education, Culture, Youth Affairs, Fisheries and Agriculture, Dr. the Honourable Natalio D. Wheatley is the new Deputy Premier of the Virgin Islands for the duration of the Government’s term in office.
Premier and Minister of Finance Honourable Andrew A. Fahie is informing the public that today, Friday, August 7, Minister for Education, Culture, Youth Affairs, Fisheries and Agriculture, Dr. the Honourable Natalio D. Wheatley will be officially sworn in as the new Deputy Premier of the Virgin Islands for the duration of the Government’s term in office.
Greetings to all. Tuesday afternoon I convened a meeting of the National Emergency Operations Centre’s operations group so that Territory leadership, including myself and the Deputy Premier, could receive a full briefing on the expectations for Potential Tropical Cyclone 9 and strategise how to enact our final preparations for that system.
Many of us were jolted out of a Sunday routine by a 4.03 magnitude earthquake. The final report from Territory partners at the Puerto Seismic Network indicates that the centre of the earthquake was approximately 32 kilometres north of Road Town, or approximately 20 miles away, and that the strongest shaking was felt by persons on the island of Virgin Gorda.

Good morning to all,
It feels as though a lot has changed since we last met in May. BVI has sprung back to life with many businesses re-opening and friends and family coming together again, though still from a safe social distance. We’ve made progress in preventing COVID-19 taking hold here, but we cannot become complacent.
