IoD hosts inaugural Mid-Year Review to maintain momentum on key issues

Progress being made on public sector reform in Jersey and the key future challenges ahead for Jersey’s government and business sector are set to fall under the spotlight at the inaugural IoD Jersey Mid-Year Review, due to take place next month.

At the event, which is sponsored by Carey Olsen and will take place at the Pomme d’Or Hotel on Tuesday 6 March from 8am, the Chief Minister Senator Ian Gorst and the States of Jersey’s newly appointed Chief Executive Charlie Parker, will outline their visions for Jersey’s public sector, discuss the key opportunities and challenges they see for Jersey in the coming year, and answer questions from the audience.

With the aim of holding Ministers to account and ensuring intelligent debate ahead of Jersey’s general election this year, the IoD Jersey’s inaugural ‘Mid-Year Review’, will also look back on the key points made at the IoD Annual Debate in September last year. 

Moderating, IoD Jersey Chairman Chris Clark will question Senator Gorst and Charlie Parker about the progress that has been made on those points since the Debate, including establishing a coherent population policy, articulating a long-term sustainable tax system, and investing in skills and education locally and off-island.

Chris Clark said: “We had some really lively and frank discussions at our Annual Debate last year, and it’s important that we don’t just leave some of the issues and ideas that were raised there in isolation, but that we keep up the momentum and continue to press for a positive way forward that can benefit us all.

“We’re in a really interesting phase in terms of politics in Jersey at the moment, given it is an election year and that there is renewed impetus in public sector reform, so we are looking forward to an interesting session, and I’m extremely grateful to our Chief Minister Senator Ian Gorst and States of Jersey Chief Executive Charlie Parker for giving their time.”

Places for the Mid-Year Review on 6th March, 8am – 10am at the Pomme D’Or Hotel, cost £15 for members and £20 for non-members including breakfast, and can be booked via
