Honourable Members, over the past few weeks there have been a number of significant developments as it relates to the Governance of the Virgin Islands and how we are continuing to ensure the good conduct of the business of the people as their democratically elected Representatives under our current Constitutional arrangement.

Premier of the Virgin Islands, Dr. the Honourable Natalio D. Wheatley has affirmed that, “Reform itself remains a top priority of his administration”, in a public statement regarding key issues on government reform.
A pleasant good morning to the Virgin Islands community; those of you joining us live via the radio and the various social media channels.
I especially wish to welcome the members of the media who are with us.
Consistent with your Government’s commitment to transparency, accountability and overall keeping you informed on the work that we are doing to properly manage your affairs, I intend, as Premier, to continue the practice of holding regular press conferences to provide updates on current matters and answer questions from the media.

Rankin, CMG, Premier and Minister of Finance Dr. the Honourable Natalio Wheatley, Minister for Health and Social Development Honourable Marlon A. Penn and Minister for Education, Culture, Youth Affairs, and Sports Honourable Sharie de Castro. The first meeting with Members of the new Cabinet of the Virgin Islands was held on 11th May, 2022 at the Premier’s Conference Room.
As I stated when I published the Commission of Inquiry report on 29 April, I believe it is a vital and hugely valuable contribution towards the achievement of better governance for the people of the BVI.
As you would recall, last Thursday, 5 May, 2022, your National Unity Government took office with a pledge to work together to urgently deal with a number of critical matters and to build a better Virgin Islands.
