“The Financial Secretary will be at the helm of developments, working alongside private sector, international, multilateral and public-sector partners to further enhance Bermuda’s global position, and the Government’s financial strength.

“The Financial Secretary is responsible for the management of the economy of Bermuda, the Government’s fiscal position, raising of government revenue and the control of government expenditure.”
