In an era of Brexit and Trump, and the economic challenges throughout the region and here in the BVI, with the constant shifting of the goal post in financial services, the time is now to “Re-imagine the BVI Economy”, according to Business BVI.

To this end, BVI Business Outlook 2017 will be held at Scrub Island Resort on Wednesday, January 18th.

According to Business BVI, now in its 7th year, they have deliberately selected the theme for January’s conference: "BVI Global: Re-imagining the BVI Economy", which is intended to focus attention as a territory on the need to take a deeper look at the economy with a broader horizon in mind.

"This is a timely relook, designed to ensure that we keep top of mind the critical role a competitive economy plays in ensuring the quality of life we enjoy."

“No man is an island. External pressures are fast-forwarding the evolution of the BVI economy, a process which has been underway for sometime, albeit on a low boil,” said Russell Harrigan, Managing Editor of Business BVI.

“It is clear that the local economy is changing and the principal challenge facing the territory in this regard is how do we reposition the BVI to competitively keep pace with this change and thus accrue long term benefits from what is inevitable.”

The business community is being encouraged to join the team for a day of top level presentations, frank discussions and globally informed debate on what is required to successfully re-imagine the BVI economy in today's tumultuous times, with discussions led by a range of accomplished professionals from the international and local spheres.

From those in the financial services sphere; lawyers, accountants, investment advisors, administrators, regulators; to those in the tourism space; hoteliers and villa owners, restaurateurs and caterers, leisure operators, drivers; to those outside the twin pillars; budding entrepreneurs, tech disruptors, realtors, personal trainers, doctors, nurses, private care providers, retailers and others - there are opportunities for all to be discovered at the event.

I only hope with the concern about the economy, that the effort doesn't swing to extreme development in an effort to go mainstream. BVI is not mainstream as acknowledged by the awards it has recently won. This particular crew has a tendency to want to homogenize
and gentrify, catering to... more
