Coming out from the recently concluded 8th Inter-Virgin Islands Council meeting held on February 4, 2020, it was revealed by Premier and Minister of Finance, Hon Andrew A. Fahie, that government plans to partner with the US Virgin Islands (USVI) to lower the cost of transporting goods to the Territory.
The Premier on the Tuesday, February 4, 2020, edition of the ‘Honestly Speaking’ radio show noted that as part of a number of upcoming collaborations with the USVI, his government will be working to negotiate cheaper shipping rates.
He said to get food into the USVI, it is cheap; however, “when it comes to just sail it right across the waters to the BVI you’re paying couple thousands well, which has to be passed on to the consumer,” the Premier said.
He knows nothing and thinks he knows everything. That points clearly to a political career.
