Tickets available for Chamber Budget Breakfast
Tickets are now available for the annual Budget Breakfast hosted by the Bermuda Chamber of Commerce.
The event will be held via Zoom on February 28, the Monday following the delivery of the Budget Statement in the House of Assembly by Curtis Dickinson, the Minister of Finance.
Kendaree Burgess, the chamber’s chief executive officer, said: “The chamber welcomes the opportunity to present a forum for the Bermuda business community to discuss this year’s Budget Statement, particularly given the continued and long-term fiscal impact of Covid-19 on tourism and the local economy and the potential impact of the 15 per cent minimum corporate tax on multinationals.
“Without a doubt this year’s budget will spark robust debate and we look forward to the discussions.”
The event will feature Mr Dickinson, along with industry panellists.
The discussion will be moderated by PwC Bermuda leader Arthur Wightman, who said: “PwC is pleased to continue our sponsorship and support for Bermuda’s premier business event.
“I expect a lively debate with the Minister of Finance and our panellists on how the Government is responding to the unprecedented Covid-19 shock to our economy.”
He added: “While businesses worldwide continue to face pressures from the pandemic, the high level of CEO optimism we found in PwC's 2022 Annual Global CEO Survey speaks to the strength and resilience of the global economy, and the ability of leaders to manage through uncertainty.
“Here in Bermuda, there is no shortage of challenges to navigate. Bold and innovative strategies are required for our economy to rebound.
“I look forward to hearing how the Minister’s budget is going to support Bermudians and businesses and bring about strong and sustainable economic growth for a post-pandemic future.”
Tickets for the event, to be held from 830am until 10am, are available at www.bermudachamber.bm.
Ticket prices are $450 for a member table of 10, $750 for a non-member table of 10, $45 for a member, and $75 for a non-member.
