Premier Congratulates Prime Minister Cameron

May 8, 2015

Today, Premier Michael Dunkley extended congratulations to British Prime Minister David Cameron following the Conservative Party’s majority win in yesterday’s UK Elections.

Premier Dunkley, who said he followed the UK elections “quite intently”, formally wrote to the British Prime Minister this morning offering his well wishes on behalf of the Government and the people of Bermuda.

In an excerpt from the letter, the Premier wrote: “I wish to extend congratulations on your victory. On behalf of the Government and people of Bermuda we are keen to continue our long standing relationship with the UK Government and engaging in our work on mutual priority interests.

“During your tenure as Prime Minister we have achieved great measures in upholding international corporate responsibility and have supported the UK’s efforts in achieving a global standard of tax and transparency…. We look forward to continuing our work and commitment in upholding international obligations of British principles.”

The Premier will have an opportunity to discuss the UK election outcome as well as other matters of mutual interest when he meets with fellow Overseas Territories Leaders at the next Joint Ministerial Council [JMC] meeting, being held in Bermuda this July.
