Mister Speaker, I am pleased to be able to make a statement today on the Scholarship Programme which is administered through the Ministry of Education, Culture, Youth Affairs, Fisheries and Agriculture. Despite the trying and unprecedented times the Territory is facing today, the Government of the Virgin Islands remains committed to providing the financial support necessary for its people to have access to tertiary education.
Today is another great day for the people of the Virgin Islands.
We are moving forward with BVILOVE.
During an innovation business symposium in December 2019, I announced that the Government of the Virgin Islands was moving forward with a rigorous economic development and diversification strategy, in which we developed and incorporated the concept of BVILOVE which is tied to our aggressive “green and innovative” legislative agenda for 2020.
Good day and God’s blessings to the people of the Virgin Islands. During my statement on the reopening of schools on Tuesday, 25th August, 2020, I announced that our phased plan to reopen schools was derailed due to a spike in COVID-19 cases in the Territory.
