Premier To Conduct Meetings In Washington DC

April 2, 2019

Premier David Burt will “conduct a round of key meetings” with members of Congress in Washington DC on Wednesday, the Government said.

“With a focus on Bermuda’s national security and financial services, the Premier is set to meet with the office of Senator Tim Scott [R-SC] the chairman of the Senate Subcommittee on Financial Institutions & Consumer Protection. Other meetings will include Congressmen George Holding and Lacy Clay of Ways & Means and Housing, Community Development & Insurance respectively,” the Government said.

“The Premier will also take the opportunity to renew Bermuda’s strong connection with the Congressional Black Caucus, meeting with Congressmen GK Butterfield and Emmanuel Cleaver, Chairman of the House Subcommittee on National Security, International Development and Monetary Policy.”

Premier Burt said: “This day of meetings balances out our recent engagement in Europe and provides an opportunity to further promote Bermuda’s interests in Washington where the political landscape has changed since 2018’s mid-term elections. We’ve seen the value of keeping these connections strong and it is important that we continue to build relationships on both sides of aisle.”

    • Chris Rock says:

      He and Caines need to do less talking and spend more time actually talking. Those two seem more like motivational speakers than elected officials.

      Those two have taken more trips to Fintech related events than we have actual companies registered. In almost two years how many of the thousands of jobs and millions of dollars have we seen? 0, 1?

      People are starting to see past all the smoke and mirrors and see most of these guys for what they are…TALKERS not doers.

      Like Chuck D said, “don’t believe the hype, – its a sequel”
