BRIDGETOWN, Barbados - Deputy Premier and Minister for Communications and Works, Honorable Kye M. Rymer (R7) has highlighted the importance of small island developing states, to share resources where necessary and collectively work to address concerns that affect them.

Hon Kye M. Rymer was at the time speaking on the outcome of the 10th International Road Federation (IRF) Caribbean Regional Congress held in Bridgetown, Barbados on June 7-10 under the theme ‘A Roadmap to a safe and Resilient Road System.’

The congress event was established in 2012 as an answer to repeated calls for a specific forum that addresses the needs of transportation professionals across 30 countries and territories in the region.

National Unity Gov't doing part push green lifestyle 

While at the event, Honourable Rymer said the National Unity Government in the Virgin Islands is doing its part and has an incentivised initiative that allows for the free importation of electrical vehicles, duty-free, in an effort to reduce the carbon footprint and encourage a green lifestyle in the Virgin Islands.

The flagship event celebrated its 10th anniversary and covered topics on Infrastructure Investments & Innovative Financing, Road Safety, Delivering Resilient Road Infrastructure & Services, Regional Integration & Cooperation, Road Asset Management, Decarbonisation of Road Transport, Building Capacity in Caribbean Public Works Ministries, and the Effect of COVID-19 on Road & Transport Agencies

Eleven ministers responsible for Transportation in the region attended the congress from countries including Antigua and Barbuda Barbados, The Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, St. Lucia, and Turks and Caicos.

      We love BVI just like you love Jamaica. What’s wrong with that. BVI have built many places as small as it is. Say thank you and stop the negative vibes

        This has to be one of the most ridiculous statements I have ever heard. You have sewerage running in your streets, your children are still attending school in a warehouse, after a hurricane, it was your rich expat population who had to bring order to your country or people would have starved, but you claiming to built places. I suggest if you have a passport please use it and travel the islands. The few BVIslanders who have done so have been pleasantly surprised, which is why they changed the narrative from these down island people coming to take all our jobs to these down island people sending all their money back home. Yall big mad because people realise that life is not about name brand and gold chain and living in an apartment.

          You are very disrespectful. You prefer to stick around and walk in the sewage while sucking the place dry.

          Most of the items that were looted after the hurricane was shipped out. Some expats are evil and would dig the eyes out of a man's head and then laugh at him and tell him he cannot see . We thank and appreciate the ones who do not come to take but to assist.

          One thing I never could understand why y'all bragging about what you have at home, calling down the BVI but still cannot get enough out of the BVI to add to what you already have.

    Stop wasting your time on these horizontal issues and focus more on yourself. Do you realize what time it is. Get off of this senseless merry go round and start to be the change you wanna see.
