Burt on jobs and investment mission in Mexico
The Premier left the island for a trade mission to Mexico yesterday to drum up jobs and investment in Bermuda.
A government spokeswoman said Mr Burt would meet hotel development business heads, technology business leaders, high net-worth individuals and their advisers in the capital, Mexico City, and visit the British Embassy.
The Premier also planned to use the opportunity to support Bermuda’s football team last night as they took on Mexico in the Concacaf Nations League.
Mr Burt said: “It has been ten years since Bermuda and Mexico signed the Tax Information Exchange Agreement.
“This is an ideal opportunity to continue to explore synergies between our countries and examine how Bermuda, as a leader in tax transparency, can work with Mexican businesses to create jobs for Bermudians.”
Mr Burt is joined on the trip by Lynesha Lightbourne, the business development manager at the Bermuda Business Development Agency; and Eduardo Fox, the Latin American affairs adviser to the Bermuda Government.
