Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for gathering here today to witness what is indeed a historical event in the advancement of both the National Bank of the Virgin Islands and the BVI Social Security Board.
Speaking at a roundtable event hosted at BVI House London, Premier Dr. Hon. D. Orlando Smith, OBE has welcomed the tremendous support offered by the financial services industry in the wake of Hurricanes Irma and Maria.
The public, especially the BVI Financial Institutions that have reporting obligations to be satisfied in the year 2017 are being notified that the authority’s email and the web-based portal the BVI Financial Account Reporting System (BVIFARS) are down, as a result of the Tropical Wave that affected the Territory last week.
The Government of the Virgin Islands recognising the need to improve airlift into the Territory for our visitors and residents alike, entered into an agreement with BVI Airways to provide the company with $7 million to operate direct flights between Miami and the British Virgin Islands.
Ms. Elise Donovan, Director, BVI House Asia, outlined the role of the British Virgin Islands (BVI) and other international financial centers (IFCs) in the global economy, in a speech she delivered at the Malaysian Wealth Management Forum held at the Hilton Kuala Lumpur.
