Deputy Premier and Minister for Education, Culture, Youth Affairs, Fisheries and Agriculture Dr. the Honourable Natalio D. Wheatley, has emphasised the economic benefits of embracing Virgin Islands’ culture, adding that it will provide a livelihood to the Territory’s cultural artisans.
I acknowledge the protocol which has already been established, and I again welcome you to the beginning of our very first Culture and Tourism Month. I will take this opportunity to give some context for the fusion of culture and tourism in the month of November and clearly articulate a very clear vision for culture during my tenure as Culture Minister.
The Territory is celebrating its first Culture and Tourism Month during November under the theme, “BVILove is our Culture” and slogan “Virgin Islands Cultural Roots Run Deep. Unity and Togetherness are the Crops We Reap!”
