The ‘Framework for the Implementation of the Recommendations of the Commission of Inquiry Report and Other Reforms’ proposed by the Government of National Unity has been accepted by the Government of the United Kingdom.
Today marks another important step in our efforts to reform and renew our democracy and to build a better Virgin Islands.
Following the visit to the Territory in early May by UK Minister for the Overseas Territories (OTs) Rt. Hon. Amanda Milling, MP, my Administration has had very constructive discussions with Governor Rankin and UK Government officials on the Commission of Inquiry Report (COI Report) recommendations and other reforms, with a view to what is in the best interest of the people of the Territory.

Good Morning, As people in the BVI are already aware, the Commission of Inquiry Report which was published on 29 April identified significant failures of governance, including evidence of corruption, abuse of office, and serious impropriety in public office. To address these failures it is clear that fundamental changes are required.
A pleasant good morning. I speak to you today on behalf of the Government of National Unity to share our plans to hold a series of public meetings on government reform, as well as begin dialogue on other matters of public interest.
