The JMC will bring together political leaders from the Overseas Territories and UK Ministers.
The JMC meets once a year to provide a forum for the exchange of views on political and constitutional issues between the governments of the Territories and the UK Government.
Issues to be discussed this year include child safeguarding, economic development, and setting a vision for the UK and the OTs in 2030.
“It is vitally important that we attend the JMC each year to keep the Cayman Islands in the forefront. Through our participation we can ensure that Cayman remains in the global spotlight and continues to build sustainable economies, create jobs and drive prosperity,” said the Hon. Premier. “Once we do these things, we can ensure a better quality of life for our citizens and visitors.”
On Saturday, 28 November, the Premier will host a reception for Cayman students who are studying in the UK.
On 3 December, Mr. McLaughlin will host an invitation-only dinner for current and potential future Friends of Cayman where he will deliver a speech and entertain questions.
During the JMC, participants will also review and implement strategy and commitments in the 2012 White Paper ‘The Overseas Territories: Security, Success and Sustainability’.
Traveling with the Premier will be Financial Services Minister Hon. Wayne Panton, Cabinet Secretary Mr. Samuel Rose and Joint Ministerial Council Sherpa Mr. Jason Webster, Financial Services Ministry Chief Officer Dax Basdeo and Andre Ebanks of the Ministry.
