Premier returns from London
Published on December 10, 2012 Email To Friend    Print Version

Newly elected Premier Rufus Ewing has returned from London, where last week he and TCI governor Ric Todd met with their counterparts at the Joint Ministerial Council of the Overseas Territories, chaired by Mark Simmonds, Britain’s recently appointed Minister for the Overseas Territories.

This year’s annual meeting had two important upgrades, as it included not only the chief ministers and premiers but the British governors. The meeting also included a visit and introduction to the British Prime Minister David Cameron.

These changes came about as the direct result of closer cooperation and assistance put in place by the Conservative Party-led coalition government in Britain, which came to power in May 2010.

On his return, Ewing reflected on the event, saying he enjoyed the meeting and ability to share common interests with other overseas territorial leaders, especially Montserrat, Bermuda and the Cayman islands.

Ewing also commented on the meeting with the British prime minister.

“The meeting, while enjoyable, gave us the ability to briefly speak of the challenges we face,” said Ewing.

He went on to complain he felt the meeting was too short.
