Chief Minister to attend BIC summit

20 November 2012

The Chief Minister will represent Jersey at the 19th British-Irish Council (BIC) summit meeting at Cardiff Castle on Monday 26 November 2012. He will be accompanied by the Minister for Education, Sport and Culture, Deputy Patrick Ryan.

The summit, which will be chaired by Wales’ First Minister Carwyn Jones, will be attended by leaders and Ministers from the eight BIC member administrations: the UK and Irish Governments; the devolved administrations of the Scottish and Welsh Governments and Northern Ireland Executive; the Government of the Isle of Man; and the States of Jersey and Guernsey.

This meeting will focus on the economy, with particular emphasis on infrastructure developments as a means to promote economic growth and early years education policy.


Senator Gorst commented “Jersey has benefited greatly from its participation in previous BIC summits and I look forward to continuing this positive dialogue with the other member administrations. The themes under discussion next week affect all of our communities and it will be interesting to see how each government has chosen to tackle them.”

Deputy Ryan added “The early years provision has been a great success story in Jersey education, particularly the partnership between the private and public sectors. The summit will give us an opportunity to share our experience with other jurisdictions and learn how they are moving forward in supporting this vital phase of a young person’s life.”
