Premier and Minister of Finance Dr. the Honourable D. Orlando Smith, OBE said he is pleased with the announcement by BVI Airways that its first BAe Avro RJ100 regional four engine jet, the Spirit of the Virgin Islands, will be arriving in the Territory at the end of this week for customary and usual flight demonstration and ground personnel training.
I was surprised to see an article in BVI Platinum calling for the Premier to come clean, following a discussion with the Governor on 25th October, during which he stated that there were documents under discussion by cabinet that had not yet been released.
Good morning. This is truly a historic moment for the BVI, poised as we are to sign this Strategic Cooperation Agreement between the Administrative Commission of the Tianjin Binhai New Area CBD and the Government of the BVI.

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen.
Before I begin my remarks I want to welcome you all here today. This is my fifth visit to Hong Kong. Between 2004 when I first visited and now our relationship has reached a new dimension. I would like to especially commend Russell Harrigan for bringing together the Hong Kong business community in this fashion to facilitate discussion of critical developments in the BVI of relevance to industry here. Each time I come I am reminded of the camaraderie that exists between many of you and those of us in the BVI and of the friends we have made here over the years.
Madam Speaker, this Minister for Communications and Works, is on record as being very vocal about the need for our telecommunications providers, to urgently upgrade the service they offer here in the Virgin Islands.
