Cayman joins other Overseas Territories in signing a Memorandum of Understanding on child safeguarding.
The MOU commits to more effective collaboration between territories for the protection of children. It’s one of the key issues Overseas Territories Minister Baroness Anelay addressed as she chaired today’s session at Lancaster House in London.
Brexit and its implications for trade was another key agenda item as leaders agree to will hold a special JMC early next year prior to beginning of the separation of the UK from the European Union.
Implementation of the Exchange of Notes and technical protocols on beneficial ownership was also discussed at today’s session and the need for clarity from the UK on technical issues like security.
The need for infrastructure on Overseas Territories was also a talking point as Premier Hon. Alden McLaughlin raised the issue of the contentious cruise berthing facility.
The Premier also pointed out that the framework for fiscal responsibility in some instances delays projects.
