Delegates to visit the seminar will have a possibility to get informed on the growth of BVI's offshore industry and get acquainted with the opportunities of working with this diversified financial services industry that includes corporate domiciliation, investment business, captive insurance and trusts and estate planning.

Such speakers having much weight in the British Virgin Islands' government and financial community as Chief Minister, Honourable Dr. D. Orlando Smith and the BVI regulator and CEO of the BVI Financial Services Commission, Robert Mathavious will address the interested audience.

To share knowledge and ideas on the success of Dubai regarding becoming a leading global financial centre, the delegation from the BVI will have a meeting with senior members of Dubai’s financial community.

Chief Operating Officer of the BVI International Finance Centre, Humphry Leue, said that hosting such events in strategic financial centres all over the world is important for the BVI International Finance Centre, and that the Middle East is particularly significant as the BVI recognizes the potential business opportunities in this region and can learn from it.
