This afternoon [Nov 1] Kim Wilson was sworn in at Government House, taking on the position of Minister of the Economy, Trade & Industry. A Senator rather than an elected MP, Minister Wilson had previously served as Attorney General under previous Premier Dr Ewart Brown, a responsibility now being undertaken by Minister Michael Scott.
Senator Wilson assumes responsibility for the work permit regime as well as “the natural synergy” between Labour and Training.
Having attained Bachelors in Psychology from the University of Illinois, a Masters in Education from Indiana University, and a LLB from London University in the United Kingdom, Ms. Wilson was admitted to the local bar in 1995.
