On behalf of the Government and people of the Virgin Islands, myself and family, I express my profound sadness on the passing of our dear and beloved brother, Carvin Malone, who passed on Sunday morning, 14 January, 2024, and I extend condolences to his wife Pernis; his siblings, Jane, Meade, Guy, and Keith; his daughter, Kirsten, and his extended family.
A pleasant good afternoon to the Press Corps, persons listening online and via radio, and Virgin Islanders here at home and abroad. Firstly, allow me to wish the people of the Virgin Islands a blessed and prosperous 2024. May we as a people ask Our Most High God for wisdom, knowledge, and understanding as we navigate the tumultuous waters on this journey of nation building.
Climate change is the single greatest threat to our survival and development. As small islands, we contribute less than a drop in the bucket to the problem, yet, stand on the frontlines of the climate crisis, experiencing the worst and most severe impacts soonest.

Your safety and well-being have been our top priorities throughout this process.
