Oct. 12, 2001 – The 2001 V.I. Economic Development Summit held in July "served as a forum for dialogue on alternatives to rebuilding the V.I. economy," in the words of a V. I. Legislature release. Attended by businesspersons, government officials, students and residents, the July 24th session was on St. Thomas; the 25th took place on St. Croix.
The July 24th session, "A Recovery Plan for the U.S. Virgin Islands, Part 1," will be aired at 2 p.m. Sunday. On Innovative St. Thomas/ St. John Cable TV it will be on Channels 71 and 57; on Innovative St. Croix Cable TV it will be on Channel 59.
The convention, sponsored by Sen. Adelbert "Bert" Bryan, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Economic Development, Agriculture and Consumer Protection, was the "first step towards addressing the financial crisis now facing the Virgin Islands," according to the release. That was before the recent terrorist attacks which have resulted in further concerns about the U.S. and V.I. economies.
This is a second chance to view the first session. The summit was first aired on Oct. 8, but due to technical difficulties St. Croix was not able to see the entire conference.
