The Conservation and Fisheries Department is inviting the community to observe the 2016 International Coastal Cleanup Day by volunteering to clean and beautify Virgin Islands coastlines on Saturday, September 17.
The public is encouraged to keep the beaches and coastlines of the Virgin Islands clean by supporting the 2016 International Coastal Clean-Up activities, sponsored this year by the Conservation and Fisheries Department and the British Virgin Islands Tourist Board.
This week, BVI Finance takes further steps to enhance and protect the British Virgin Islands’ reputation as a legitimate and respected offshore financial centre by commencing an economic research study.
For the first time since the enactment of the Trade Marks Act 2013 and the Trade Marks Rules 2015, BVI Finance and the Virgin Islands Association of Registered Trade Mark Agents (ARTMA) attended the International Trademark Association’s (INTA) annual meeting.
BVI Finance, in collaboration with TEAM BVI Latin America, hosted a series of events in Latin America to promote the BVI as the premier offshore financial services jurisdiction and mark the return of the BVI Road Show.
The BVI has highlighted the positive role of financial services and deepened its international cooperation with Latin America and the Caribbean at the 36th Session of the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (UN ECLAC).
