Chief Ministers of Crown Dependencies meet

25 October 2012

The Chief Ministers of Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man have held their first formal meeting to discuss areas of mutual interest since all three jurisdictions held general elections.
Jersey’s Chief Minister, Senator Ian Gorst, Guernsey’s Deputy Peter Harwood and the Hon Alan Bell MHK from the Isle of Man met at Gatwick airport today (Thursday 25 October) as part of the Islands’ ongoing commitment to greater cooperation and communication.

Discussions focussed on the current economic situation and public sector reforms in each Crown Dependency. Politicians also discussed overseas aid.

Jersey’s Chief Minister, Senator Ian Gorst, said “Since the elections, there has been a real enthusiasm to engage with each other and work together in areas that are of benefit to each island. I’m pleased that this has now been formalised with our first official meeting.”

Guernsey’s Chief Minister, Deputy Peter Harwood, said “Guernsey, Jersey, and the Isle of Man, while separate and indeed competing jurisdictions in certain areas, face common challenges where working together benefits taxpayers in all of our islands.
"I am therefore delighted to have followed-up the bilateral meetings held earlier this year with Jersey and the Isle of Man with this opportunity to discuss matters of mutual interest.”

It’s hoped the next meeting will be held in the New Year.
