The new Premier who met with the leaders on Thursday morning, was congratulated individually by all the leaders for the victory of the Virgin Islands Party.

“The BVI delegation is looking forward to the deliberations at the meeting over the next two days, as we explore areas for close collaboration among the various territories,” Fahie said ahead of the meeting.

“It is the view of my government that we have to deepen collaboration with all the nations and islands in the Caribbean because we are clear that we have shared destinies, and that by working closer together we can bring greater benefits to our respective peoples,” the Premier said.
