    How many trips is this in total? Not even three full months yet and gone to Guadeloupe, UK, Nicaragua, and more. What will the BVI really receive out of the thousands being spent on travel?

      That would be great if the Premier can make a trip to Brooklyn for the Labor Day Caribbean Parade. Why not, the majority of leaders from the Caribbean is in Brooklyn for Labor Day.

        What an un-researched comment. The other Ministers also do their official travel. Also you cannot fix the BVI unless you get around the table abroad. Premier keep up the good work.

    • Yes says:

      I agree, just look how the other men are tailored he really can do better.

  9. I was thinking the same thing says:

    Yes Premier, no disrespect, but it is time to have some new suits tailored made to issue a better fit. You are representing us and you have to look your best at all times.

  11. My take says:

    The amount of stupid post on this about the Leader of a country travelling to get better for the country is totally out of ignorance. Some of the people in the BVI do not need representing only drowning.

  12. One thing says:

    Our Premier should be commended that a panel of this high quality requested of the Premier of the BVI to be part of this panel. This makes me proud of our Premier.
