Government seeks input on Bermuda’s future

Government has called on the public to say how they think Bermuda should move forward after Covid-19.

Jamahl Simmons, the Minister with Responsibility for Communications, said Government has taken an “all hands on deck” approach and want to get input from the public.

Mr Simmons said: “The Government recognises there will be a need for a major recovery effort to get businesses reopened, Bermudians back to work and our economy growing again.

“We want to hear the public's suggestions on how to help our country prosper through new opportunities using traditional and out of the box thinking.

“With everyone's help, ideas and vision, we can find and put in place solutions to benefit all Bermudians.”

Mr Simmons said the Government has also sought suggestions on legislative reform.

He said: “Over time, laws become outdated, outmoded or simply irrelevant to modern society.

“We seek to bring Bermuda's laws into the 21st century while introducing legislation that improves the lives of and opportunities for Bermudians.”

He urged people to share their thoughts and ideas about Bermuda's future online at forum.gov.bm.

Mr Simmons added: “As a country, we will grow stronger by incorporating new ideas and perspectives as we charter a different course in a world that will be vastly different than it was before the Covid-19 global pandemic.”
