I am holding this press briefing to provide you with an update on my recent meetings in London where, among other things, I attended the United Kingdom–Overseas Territories Joint Ministerial Council on European Negotiations.  As you are aware, while I was the President of the United Kingdom Overseas Territories Association (UKOTA) last year, I led efforts to secure this important meeting which was agreed last November at the annual JMC.  It was essential that at political level the OTs views were heard ahead of the UK Government triggering Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty to formally begin negotiations on Britain’s exit from the EU.

Christmas is a very special time of year for many of us. With our diverse community, a Virgin Islands Christmas of 2016 is much different than the Christmases I grew up knowing, where there was one reason for the season. Different cultures, different religions and different beliefs present a new opportunity for us to welcome other cultural celebrations, but also a chance for us to show our visitors and friends what a Virgin Islands Christmas is like.
