The government has launched a new Web site designed to encourage vacationers to visit the Virgin Islands. Information about the beauty, cultural pride and economic opportunities of the Virgin Islands are found on the promotional site, www.GovernorTurnbull.net, designed by a New York communications firm as part of a $50,000 contract.
"Part of our mandate was to project the territory nationally," said Lonnie Soury, president of Soury Communications. "We want people to see the Virgin Islands in the aspect of the national and global picture."
Soury told the Virgin Islands Daily News the web site is now being promoted to the financial community and national media outlets in New York and Washington.
