“It is disappointing that the Government of the Virgin Islands has not fully given the RDA the opportunity to realise it’s potential. I therefore understand and sympathise with Mr Bayly’s decision,” Governor Jaspert said while reacting to the news on Tuesday.
The governor further gave indications of being concerned about whether Bayly’s departure will stunt the territory’s recovery process.
He, therefore, said it is now vital for the RDA to ‘build on Bayly’s achievements’.
“The RDA is incredibly important to BVI’s recovery and development – a top priority for us all – and I sincerely hope that the setback of BVI losing such an experienced and talented CEO does not hamper recovery efforts,” the Governor said.
“The RDA requires the full support of the Premier and his ministers so that it can work with government, bring in funding and deliver transparency, value for money and a full and prosperous recovery for the people of this territory.”
A business that makes nothing but money is a poor business.
