Financial Matters to be Discussed between PM Douglas and Jersey Officials


Dr. Douglas, along with the Federation’s High Commissioner to London, His Excellency Kevin Isaac will on Tuesday, 19th and Wednesday 20th April, meet representatives from the government as well as the Jersey Financial Services Commission and Jersey Finance.

Prime Minister Douglas is discussing financial regulation and look at how both jurisdictions are dealing with the global financial downturn. Also on the agenda for discussion will be inward investment, tourism and agriculture.

Jersey’s Assistant Chief Minister, Sen. Freddie Cohen said he is “very much looking forward to welcoming the prime minister and high commissioner.

“We will be delighted if our experience in areas such as tourism, agriculture and financial regulation can assist the Government of St. Kitts and Nevis to develop in these areas.”

Jersey is a British Crown Dependency, off the coast of Normandy, France.

It is the largest and most popular of all the Channel Islands and is a leading tourist destination and financial centre.

It is a separate possession of the Crown and is not part of the United Kingdom although the UK is constitutionally responsible for its defence.
