Burt has ‘productive meeting’ with Gurría

David Burt, the Premier, tweeted this picture of himself with OECD Secretary General Ángel Gurría

David Burt says he held a positive meeting with OECD Secretary General Ángel Gurría today.

The Premier is in Europe this week to discuss financial issues with key policymakers in London, Paris and Brussels.

He tweeted this afternoon: “Productive meeting today with #OECD Secretary General @A_Gurria and @BermudaPremier in #Paris. Recognising #Bermuda ‘s high standard.”

Mr Burt has said he will use the trip to reinforce Bermuda’s “recognised leadership position in transparency and compliance” with leading representatives from the OECD, the European Union, and the British Government.

He said in a press release yesterday: “Our objective is simple, to prevent any negative impact to Bermuda from the ongoing work of the EU Code of Conduct Group.”

The Premier is joined on the trip by assistant financial secretary of the Treaty Unit Wayne Brown and British representative for the Government of Bermuda, Kimberley Durrant.
