Economic development the next test for CI co-operation
Thursday 10th January 2013, 8:30AM GMT.
CHIEF Minister Peter Harwood has pledged to continue to develop working jointly with Jersey.
Progress is being made on cost-saving projects and acting as the Channel Islands in international engagement. And Deputy Harwood, pictured, said that more could be done on economic development and laws common to each island.
‘To many an outside observer, informed or otherwise, the administrative, legislative and judicial systems look remarkably similar,’ he said.
‘Names differ here and there, but when compared with the rest of the world, we have far more in common with each other than we have differences.’
However, an opportunity for the chief ministers to stand side-by-side was dashed by the weather yesterday. Deputy Harwood and Jersey’s Ian Gorst were due to speak together at a Jersey Chamber of Commerce lunch.
