UK political talks: Hoping for change on public registries

Cayman’s leaders, as well as, other Overseas Territory leaders are on the ground in the UK this week.
And they are hoping to turn the tide on the push for public beneficial ownership registries by 2020 when they meet with London groups and Government officials.
The controversial Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill heads to the House of Lords next week and this week Premier Hon. Alden McLaughlin, as well as, British Virgin Islands Premier Dr. Orlando Smith are in the UK.
Dr. Smith, together with his country’s Opposition Leader Hon. Andrew Fahie, will put their negotiating skills to the test seeking to make changes to the amendment pushing to force public registries on overseas territories.
Premier McLaughlin is currently in London for the celebration of 60th anniversary of Cayman’s Coat of Arms. He is also meeting with UK officials. But his Communications Director said she cannot confirm what these discussions will centre around.
House speaker Hon. McKeeva Bush, Opposition Leader Hon. Ezzard Miller and Bodden Town West MLA Chris Saunders are also part of the Premier’s Cayman delegation.
