Chief Minister to visit Abu Dhabi

16 April 2013

Chief Minister, Senator Ian Gorst, will visit the United Arab Emirates between 20 April 2013 and 23 April 2013. This is part of an increasingly busy programme of engagement with the region, which has seen a recent visit to Jersey by the Emirati Ambassador to the UK, as well as separate visits to the UAE by Senators Bailhache and Ozouf in spring last year.
Senator Gorst will attend meetings with government and businesses to discuss a wide range of issues, including financial services, international development, renewable energy and education. He will be accompanied by officials from the Chief Minister’s Department and the Economic Development Department, as well as representatives of Jersey Finance, which has an office in Abu Dhabi.
Senator Gorst said “There are well-established political and commercial links between Jersey and the UAE, and I will be looking to enhance and strengthen these relationships during my visit. The UAE is an important gateway to the Gulf region and, as such, is of great value to Jersey businesses operating in a number of sectors.”
