The BVI All Party Parliamentary Group has been reestablished after being defunct for more than two years.
This was confirmed by the Premier and Minister of Finance Dr. the Honourable Natalio Wheatley, who made the announcement during Thursday’s sitting of the House of Assembly.
He said Tory Member of Parliament in the United Kingdom James Sutherland is the new chair.
“I’m pleased to report that in the UK, after much hard work and effort by our international affairs team, and in particular the BVI London Office, the BVI All Party Parliamentary Group was officially reestablished last month,” Dr. Wheatley stated.
He added, “The group is made up of parliamentarians within the UK Parliament who will be a voice for the BVI within the House of Commons and House of Lords. The Chair is Mr. James Sutherland MP.”
Premier Wheatley said his Government of National Unity will continue to be engaged internationally and work in the best interest of the people of the Virgin Islands.
