Government seeks feedback on measures to cut red tape

The Government urged members of the public to submit their thoughts on how to cut bureaucracy in Bermuda.

David Burt said reducing red tape could have a “critical effect” on making sure the island remains a competitive jurisdiction and called for people to provide feedback as part of a consultation at www.forum.gov.bm.

“Many in the public have expressed concerns about outdated regulations and bureaucratic processes that have hindered local businesses from conducting some activities, expanding their operations or simply causing frustration due to time consuming processes,” the Premier said. “And we have listened.

“So, we want to hear directly from those affected about the obstacles faced and receive recommendations on processes that can be streamlined to reduce frustrations.

“The consultation page launched on March 15, and while the feedback has been encouraging, there is always an opportunity to receive more recommendations.

“I want to thank those who have provided submissions so far and invite others to submit their input.

“This your opportunity to have your say. Share your innovative solutions on how we can better assist you to thrive and be successful.”

The deadline for submissions is April 30.
