Caines and Abir in immigration talks
The efficiency of the Department of Immigration in dealing with work permit applications was one of the topics discussed in talks involving government officials and the body that represents the island’s international re/insurance industry.
Wayne Caines, the Minister of National Security, and Collin Anderson, Permanent Secretary, met with John Huff, chief executive officer of the Association of Bermuda Insurers and Reinsurers, and Suzanne Williams, Abir’s director of policy and regulation, yesterday.
“At the meeting, we provided updates on the Department of Immigration’s progress on immigration reform and our success in eradicating the backlog of work permit applications,” Mr Caines stated in a government press release.
“We spoke of the ministry’s objective to improve efficiency by identifying and improving work flows and streamlining processes.
“We also discussed good corporate citizenship and providing training and advancement opportunities for Bermudians.
“Most importantly, we agreed that all of Bermuda must be included in the discussion. This will ensure that above all else, the ideas and needs of Bermudians are taken into consideration.”
