BVI Ranked First in the Region for Best Quality of Life

In a report which was recently released by FDI Intelligence, a division of the Financial Times of London, the British Virgin Islands was ranked in the top first place in the list of countries of the Caribbean and Central America.

The report was published based on data compiled by the division of the Financial Times ans scored by an independent judging panel. Judging criteria for the category, which the BVI was the first, was based on multiple factors including life expectancy, infant mortality, unemployment rate, GDP per capita, crime and secondary enrollment rate.

Neil Blyden, chairman of the British Virgin Islands Tourist Board, said in his comments on the BVI ranking: "We are pleased to receive this recognition and we look forward to sharing these wonderful attributes with visitors to the destination... From our pristine beaches and exhilarating natural attractions to our friendly people, award-winning cuisine and outstanding accommodations, the BVI is a destination made for such superlatives."
