A number of organisations in the BVI’s business and finance sector have pledged a total of $225,500, in support of the Commercial Division of the BVI High Court’s rebuild, following the destruction caused by Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

BVI Finance made the announcement on Monday, December 4.

“On 19 September, the Government of the Virgin Islands made an announcement informing the public that the BVI Commercial Court would be relocated to St. Lucia until further notice,” BVI Finance stated.

“In an obvious attempt to expedite its return, BVI firms have banded together and pledged $225,500 towards the court’s rebuild.”

Commenting on the pledges, BVI Finance Interim Executive Director, Lorna Smith said that it is evident that the BVI’s financial services industry, both in the BVI and abroad, is always ready to do their part to ensure the continued success of the jurisdiction as a respected international business and finance centre.

“As we begin the rebuild for the BVI Commercial Court, we are reminded of the importance of our public/private partnership and grateful for the contributions made," she stated.

Contributions towards the Commercial Court and other areas of need are still being accepted at this time. For more information, contact BVI Finance at info@bvifinance.vg.
