Chamber Response to Public Sector Reforms

Thursday 8 March 11:29

The Jersey Chamber of Commerce is encouraged to see business and commercial enterprise as a prominent theme in the proposals for public sector reform in Jersey.

Themes such as Brexit and trade, which must be a priority for the States and our new government, as only three weeks remain until the half-way stage of Brexit negotiations are reached.

It appears as though positive steps are being made to support economic growth, aided by more joined-up States departments and taking a pro-active collaborative approach to working with key stakeholders in the island, such as the Chamber of Commerce.

President of the Jersey Chamber of Commerce, Eliot Lincoln said: “As the voice of business, it is imperative that our member's opinions and concerns are heard and listened to when policy and legislation are being discussed and shaped in Jersey.”

“We are very fortunate at Chamber, that so many senior business leaders in the island are willing to give up their time for our organisation on behalf of commerce and so I am optimistic that the changes proposed by the States new Chief Executive, Charlie Parker, along with his confirmed willingness to regularly engage with Chamber, are steps in the right direction for the States and the future prosperity of the island's economy.”  

“Education and migration are two key themes for Chamber, in this our 250th anniversary year. It is vital for our future economy that school leavers of all ages have gained an education that prepares them for life and the world of work and Chamber will do its part in strengthening links between island businesses, schools and colleges. However, the States has a major part to play alongside the island’s business community in ensuring that we train and educate to the highest standards to support and work within all sectors of the Jersey economy. Jersey will always need a migrant workforce to some degree and an open, honest discussion on population and the recruitment needs of businesses in Jersey must be a priority for the newly elected government.”
