Tracy Bradshaw acting for nearly 4 years as BVI London Office Director

Tracy Bradshaw acting for nearly 4 years as BVI London Office Director

As the Virgin Islands celebrates some 20 years of the BVI London Office being in operation, there remains the issue of the non-confirmation of its acting Director.

The London Office, which was established in 2002 by then Premier and Minister of Finance Honourable Ralph T. O’Neal OBE (now deceased), has continued to make all Virgin Islanders and other residents proud of the work the office has done over the 20 years in representing the interest of the Territory in the UK and the European Union (EU).

The office has seen many Directors, many of whom were confirmed to the post.

However, after first being appointed in 2019 to act as the Director, Ms Tracy Bradshaw has to date not been appointed/confirmed to the post after acting for nearly four years.

Many in the Virgin Islands, including elected officials, have praised Bradshaw's extraordinary work and her professionalism as the Director (ag.) of the BVI London Office.

Bradshaw is qualified

Bradshaw, who was first assigned to the BVI London Office in 2015 on secondment and remained there, is very qualified for the top post.

The Premier‘s Office has been tight-lipped over her continued acting appointment and elected Members have made representation to the current and former Premier over the matter.

Ms Bradshaw, a Virgin Islander, is also an Attorney at law.

Many civil servants see it as unfair and injustice to have public officers acting in a post for so long.

Personnel in the Deputy Governor's Office referred our news centre to the Premier’s Office on this matter.
