UKOTA Pre-JMC Meeting 2019
The Cayman Islands Government acted as hosts to the Premiers, Leaders of Delegations, and their UK Representatives, from the Overseas Territories for this year’s pre Joint Ministerial Council meeting. All members of the UK Overseas Territories Association were represented, apart from Ascension Island and Pitcarin who sent apologies.
The meeting, held on 26 June, decided on topics that the Territory Governments would like to see on the agenda, and format for, the Joint Ministerial Meeting in November, and these included: trade, environmental issues and funding, banking , oceans policy and frozen pensions. The Foreign Affairs Select Committee report, published in February, was discussed in some detail with general dissatisfaction being expressed about the methodology and the outcomes of the exercise.
