A point of clarification on a story we brought you last night (21 March.)
We reported government officials planned to meet with China Harbour officials in Hong Kong. That report came after we reached out to a government spokesperson and received confirmation.
After the story ran, however, the spokesperson said the confirmation was in relation to a different question we asked and there had been a miscommunication. Roy Tatum issued a statement today (22 March.)
“The Head of the Office of the Premier advises the Cayman delegation to Hong Kong has had no meeting nor intends to have any with China Harbour engineering in Hong Kong or anywhere else,” the statement said.
The statement went on to state, “The delegation to Hong Kong is here solely to participate in the UK’s GREAT Festival of Innovation where the Cayman Islands is being showcased to the large number of attendees at the Festival. This provided an opportunity to showcase our Financial Services, Luxury Tourism and Healthcare business.”
The miscommunication is regretted.
