Ladies and gentlemen of the Virgin Islands, today for my weekly brief, I bring to you an update on my meetings with the World Bank and its partners that I attended last week along with Minister for Health and Social Development, Hon Ronnie W. Skelton, and a housing update.

Residents of the Virgin Islands, there is a well-known saying that ‘tough times don’t last, tough people do’. When I reflect on this saying, I can’t help but think on the current status of our islands and the resilience of the people who are working endlessly day and night to build back our Territory. In this regard, I would like to take this time to extend a heartfelt thank you to all our partners, local, regional and international alike, for their on-going efforts towards recovery post hurricanes Irma and Maria.
Public Officers, as a result of reduced power to the Central Administration Complex, which could not sustain Government’s server system fully, there will be a further delay in the processing of payroll for the end of September pay period.

Good day my fellow residents. As we come to the end of this September, I give God thanks for his continued blessings on our lives. As daunting as this month was for the Virgin Islands, I believe we still have much to be grateful for.
Good day Virgin Islanders and residents. Based on consultation with Cabinet, the state of emergency has been relaxed with the exception of the curfew which remains in effect from 8:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. daily.
