Premier Dr. Hon. Rufus Ewing will host UK Overseas Territories [OT] Heads of Government in the TCI for the Pre-Joint Ministerial Council [JMC] Meeting.
This is the first time the TCI will be hosting Pre-JMC Meetings which will take place from July 21st – 22nd, 2016.
Representation to the forum includes Premiers, Representative Leaders, Cabinet Ministers and senior Civil Servants of the Overseas Territories.
Premiers and leaders attending the meetings will include, Premier of the British Virgin Islands, Dr. the Hon. Orlando Smith OBE, Premier of Cayman Islands, the Hon. Alden McLaughlin, Premier of Bermuda, the Hon Michael H. Dunkley, Premier of Monserrat, the Hon. Donaldson Romeo, the Hon.

The Pre-JMC Meetings are a precursor for the upcoming Overseas Territories Joint Ministerial Council [OT JMC] meeting to be hosted by the UK Government in London later this year. The JMC process under the remit of the London Office works in cohesion with Overseas Territory representative offices based in the UK to ensure TCI’s overall interests are upheld.
