Good day to all in the Virgin Islands. As weather watchers will already know, there are currently two weather disturbances in the Atlantic that are showing the potential to develop into tropical storms. The first, which forecasters are calling AL94, was this morning located about 150 miles east of Barbados and is expected to pass near the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico tomorrow.
Good day and God’s blessings. This year’s emancipation holidays fall within a difficult period of BVI history. Still reeling from the most devastating hurricanes in our history, we are in the midst of the worst pandemic in 100 years, which has now claimed more than 30 lives. We extend sincere condolences to the people of the Virgin Islands who have lost loved ones.
On behalf of the Government and people of the Virgin Islands, I would like to congratulate the new Prime Minister of Saint Lucia, The Honourable Philip J. Pierre, on his resounding election victory and appointment as Prime Minister. The General Election was yet another triumph of democracy in the Caribbean.

I wish to set the record straight on some misinformation that is being intentionally promoted by Members of Her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition with respect to the recent Cabinet Decision - No. 281/2021 of 8 July, 2021 - to create the post of Ministerial Political Adviser to provide specialist support to Ministers and Junior Ministers to assist them in delivering the mandate for which they were elected and sworn in as Government to perform.
