(BVI News) Premier Dr D Orlando Smith has announced that he will establish a task-force to examine the implications Brexit will have for the British Virgin Islands (BVI).

Brexit is the process by which Britain is seeking to leave the European Union, which comprises 28 member states primarily located in Europe.

Premier Smith, who is also the minister of finance, yesterday told journalists that he will head the task force, which will also include other government ministers as well as technocrats.

The White Paper on the implications of Brexit for the BVI is expected to be ready before representatives of the territory again meet with members of the British government in June and again in November.
