British Virgin Islands (BVI) – Deputy Premier Dr Natalio Wheatley has expressed that the BVI may be experiencing some of its most difficult times since slavery.
Dr Wheatley made the remark while appearing on the Virgin Islands Party’s (VIP) ‘Let’s Talk’ radio programme last evening, March 8 along with Health Minister Carvin Malone.
During the programme, Dr Wheatley highlighted that the VIP administration under Premier Andrew Fahie had just celebrated three years in office, but he moved quickly to some of the troubles the administration has had to endure within that period.
“We have made quite a number of accomplishments despite very trying circumstances. I would say this is perhaps the most difficult time the Virgin Islands has had, maybe outside of slavery, and those times maybe just right after slavery trying to build an economy and trying to survive,” Dr Wheatley said.
