ABOUT THE USVI CBF SERIES
COVID has impacted the US Virgin Islands economy in ways we could have never imagined. But the USVI is on the path to recovery and it is time to start a new conversation about putting our businesses, and our livelihoods, back together.
The Community Business Forum series an initiative of the Office of the Governor, the VI Economic Development Authority, and the VI Department of Tourism, in partnership with the Royal Caribbean Group, to help USVI businesses adapt to and innovate in a new COVID environment.
Join us monthly for open discussions with Royal Caribbean Group, VI business leaders, and decision-makers about being ready for what’s next in 2021. Also hear from local entrepreneurs about how they survived in this COVID economy. Everyone is encouraged to ask questions and to share their thoughts and best ideas.
