BVI Government Plans to Concentrate on Financial Services and Tourism

Premier and Minister of Finance Dr. D. Orlando Smith has said in his New Year's message on Facebook that in developing the economy of the British Virgin Islands there would be two major traditional pillars – tourism and financial services. He added that the BVI government “will also focus on supporting our small businesses because keeping them afloat is critical to our economic well-being.”

Premier Smith also spoke about the challenges which are to be responded this year: “We have challenges ahead but with those challenges come new opportunities for us to break away from old ways of thinking and forge new paths for ourselves as a people and as a territory.”
