I extend greetings to everyone in the Virgin Islands, the Region and the World. In presenting this report, again, I would like to extend prayers and words of condolences to all families who have lost loved ones during this trying period, whether by COVID or other causes.
His Excellency, the Acting Governor Mr. David D. Archer, Jr., chaired the Meeting held on 1st September, 2021, in the absence of Governor John J. Rankin, CMG, who was overseas on private business. The Meeting was held at the Financial Services Commission’s Conference Room.
We are now 18 months into the worst pandemic to hit the world in over 100 years. And by the Grace of God, and the cooperation of all our people – our public officers, our health personnel, persons in law enforcement and other agencies, the business community, and other members of the public – and with the support of many persons and agencies outside of the Territory, the Virgin Islands has been able to manage through the COVID-19 crisis thus far.
