Leaders of BVI and other British Overseas Territories Meet in Bermuda

The meeting of the Overseas Territories Consultative Council (OTCC) was held in Bermuda, visited by the representatives of four Britain's Overseas Territories. From the British Virgin Islands, there were Premier Ralph O'Neal and MP Vincent Scatliffe; they were joined by Premier Mckeeva Bush of the Cayman Islands, Deputy Chief Minister Edison Baird of Anguilla, and Charles Kirnon, Montserrat's Minister of Communication, Works and Labour.

The main purpose of the OTCC meeting was to offer the leaders of the countries an opportunity to discuss the matters of interest for the participants before the official conference which will take place in London at the end of the year. By words of Bermuda Premier Dr Ewart Brown, the meeting was successful, because the participants “have completed full and varied agenda”, and now they are well prepared for London conference. He said that during the meeting the members of the OTCC expressed concern about the scrutiny that was given by the UK to financial affairs of its overseas territories.
