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.
