Busy first day in London for Premier
Michael Dunkley has met with overseas territory leaders in London ahead of tomorrow's Joint Ministerial Council on European Negotiations.
Bermuda was recently elected as chair of the United Kingdom Overseas Territories Association and will take a lead role in tomorrow's high level discussions that will focus on trade, European Union market access and free movement.
Tomorrow's discussions will be chaired by Baroness Anelay and Parliamentary Under Secretary of State Robin Walker for the Overseas Territories, which falls under the Department for Exiting the European Union.
During the course of today the Premier joined Alden McLaughlin, the Premier of the Cayman Islands, and Orlando Smith, the Premier of the British Virgin Islands, in visiting the Chinese embassy to talk about renewable energy, telecommunications and business.
Mr Dunkley also made a formal request for the UK to extend the UN Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women to Bermuda.
He said that the Government was keen to address matters of gender equality to ensure that women enjoy the same access to opportunities and benefits within and beyond the workplace.
