The Chamber supports the implementation of One Person, One Vote and single member constituencies for all electoral districts and urges the elected Government to implement electoral reform before the next election in 2017. The Government has three and a half years to implement the required legislative changes and we are hopeful that they will fulfill their campaign promise.

The Chamber Council agrees with the Premier that the national priority must be focused on getting unemployed Caymanians back to work and the local economy. This can only be achieved by way of extensive Government reform to redefine and clarify the roles and the functions of the National Workforce Development Agency and the Immigration Department with specific and viable goals to get unemployed Caymanians back to work. The cost of doing business, the cost of living and the heightened level of crime against businesses are also areas of concern among Chamber members. Public sector reform is critical to the business sector and the future of the Islands. We call for further action and would like to see ongoing transparency as to the progress we are making.
