The government of the Turks and Caicos Islands has launched a new partnership with the Cayman Islands to improve the performance of the civil services of both countries.

The new partnership is geared at enhancing training, professional development and performance management in the civil service.

On August 8, Deputy Governor’ Anya Williams accompanied by the Director of her office Mr. Tito Lightbourne and Human Resources Director Mr. Mark Greenway visited the Cayman Islands to commence talks with officials in this regard.

According to a media release during the course of the visit the Deputy Governor and her team had the opportunity to engage with Cayman`s Deputy Governor Franz Manderson and his team on areas of mutual interest and how both territories could work to improve the services that their agencies provide to the general public.

Commenting on the visit Deputy Governor Manderson said: “It was a privilege and pleasure to welcome the Deputy Governor of the Turks and Caicos Islands to the Cayman Islands.

“We are working together to improve the performance of our respective civil services so that we can deliver high quality services to our customers and look forward to great successes.”

According to the release Deputy Governor Williams was pleased to visit Cayman and to formally launch such a partnership.

She stated: “DG Manderson and I were appointed during the same period as both our territories have been undergoing a series of reform programs throughout the years, we both have continuously led over the years in delivering presentations in the UK and elsewhere on the successes of our reform programs.

“Following on from the voluntary severance program in the Turks and Caicos we have spent a considerable amount of time during the past few years in focusing on rebuilding the civil service by ensuring that departments were properly staffed and equipped with the resources needed to carry out their jobs, including improvements in pay and infrastructure and whilst there is still some work to be done in this area, our new vision will focus on rebranding the civil service and on improving our customer service delivery.”

She explained that this will be done by continuing to focus on staff training and professional development and by ensuring that proper performance management systems are put in place.

The Cayman Islands has been of great assistance to the Turks and Caicos Islands in the past in providing training for social services and in other areas of development.
