Premier Michael Dunkley will be travelling to the UK at the end of this month to participate in the Overseas Territories Joint Ministerial Council Meetings [OT JMC].

The Cabinet Office said, “Premier Dunkley joins other OT leaders as well as Cabinet Ministers and senior Civil Servants from Anguilla, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Falkland Islands, Gibraltar, Montserrat, Turks and Caicos Islands, Ascension Island, Tristan Da Cunha, St Helena and Pitcairn at the annual gathering.

“It’s anticipated that there will be a robust agenda for the upcoming OT JMC with issues such as Brexit, immigration matters and environmental sustainability forming part of the discussion among OT leaders.

“Also while in London, the Premier and Bermuda’s London Office will host the annual networking forum for Bermudians living, working and studying in the UK. The event takes place October 31st, at the London Office, located at 6 Arlington Street, London, SW1A 1RE at 7.00 pm.

“The Government appreciates that there are many Bermudians living in the UK, and as has been the tradition in years past, the upcoming networking reception provides an opportunity for Bermudians to have a face to face dialogue with the Premier.

“The London Office is advising those Bermudian students who are registered with the Office that they will have an opportunity to win a complimentary round trip ticket between London and Bermuda courtesy of British Airways.

“To register with the Office visit here. Alternatively students can register with the London Office at the October 31st event. For more information about the London Office networking session or to RSVP, email or call 020 7518 9900.
