“As Premier, my commitment for 2022 - and that of your Government, is to continue working hard to promote Good Governance and to transform the Virgin Islands into a leading regional economy,” he said.
Hon Fahie added that his mandate to transform the territory will be achieved through entrepreneurship, innovation and local and foreign investment, “so that we can create more opportunities for you and your children, and improve your social and economic security and overall quality of life.”
He said as a people, the VI has immense potential and is blessed with amazing natural resources, “Let us resolve to work together for the development of our beloved Virgin Islands. Let us strive to inspire, encourage and support each other.”
He also called for the territory to harness its strengths and opportunities to neutralize threats and weaknesses and to become more solution-oriented and to respectfully and constructively tolerate different points of view.
The Premier further encouraged the public to join together in one accord for the annual ‘‘A Time of Praise and Prayer’ scheduled for today, January 1, 2022.
The service will be held at the Queen Elizabeth II Park from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. under the theme: “'For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future. '” — Jeremiah 29:11
