Good afternoon members of the media. As you know, this forum provides an opportunity for me to update on matters of the Government. And, especially this afternoon, I’d like to inform you of my upcoming travel to Asia.
Who says you can’t take sand to the beach? The 2018 Miami Open, embraced the BVI Tourist Board when they took the territory to Miami. A sequel to its first prominent participation last year, the BVI was the exclusive Caribbean destination sponsor at this prestigious event held in Key Biscayne, Florida which took place on March 19 – April 1. The BVI sponsored the daily weather forecast in Key Biscayne. Prior to each match, the weather forecast was posted on the Miami Open’s Instagram story. Additionally, patrons were able to sip the world’s famous BVI Painkiller while shaded under branded umbrellas with their toes in the warm sand at the BVI Beach Bar.
Following yesterday’s decision by the UK’s House of Commons to force the Overseas Territories to adopt public registers of beneficial ownership of companies, the Premier of the British Virgin Islands responded swiftly to reassure the financial sector and those who use its services around the world.
The BVI Airports Authority hereby update and advise that the Taddy Bay Airport, Virgin Gorda will be temporarily closed at sunset Saturday, April 21, 2018 in an effort to maintain compliance with both local and international safety practices. The reason for this closure is to facilitate maintenance on, or replacement of the airport’s fire tender.
Dreams can come to reality, even in the face of adversity. Pastor Devon Penn, a son of the soil and his family, were forced to relocate to New York after the passage of hurricanes Irma and Maria destroyed their family home.
