BVI Governor Speaks on BVI Government Legislative Agenda


BVI Governor John Duncan has delivered his speech at the first sitting of the second session of the third House of Assembly of the BVI themed "Securing Our Future" where he outlined specific focus areas for the BVI government. These included improving social services, strengthening educational sector, border protection, enhancing law, order and public safety, stimulating the economy, infrastructural development, and public sector reforms.

The Governor's speech from the throne, covering legislative agenda of the BVI government, is traditional in Commonwealth countries and British Overseas territories. It is used by the government to set its legislative programme for the upcoming year, and is prepared by the government on behalf of the Queen. 

John Duncan became the 16th governor of the British Virgin Islands on August 15, 2014, and his first speech from the throne address was delivered on November 10, 2014.
