Minister for External Relations to meet with Honorary Consuls to Jersey

The Minister for External Relations, Senator Sir Philip Bailhache, is to meet on Tuesday (25th July) with the Honorary Consuls of nine nations whose citizens have made their home in the Island, to discuss the potential impact of Brexit and the wider concerns of foreign nationals living in Jersey. The meeting will also be an opportunity to convey the Government’s ongoing commitment to engagement with EU Member States.

The meeting is part of the ongoing work of the Ministry of External Relations to ensure that the interests of all Islanders are understood and incorporated in the Government’s preparations for Brexit.

Senator Bailhache commented: “Our immigrant communities make up an essential part of the rich and diverse diaspora of individuals living and working in the Island. Economically, socially and culturally, Jersey benefits greatly from the contribution of the approximately 15,000 non-British EU citizens resident in the Island. From the outset, therefore, the Government of Jersey has been clear about its desire to guarantee the position of EU citizens in Jersey at the earliest possible stage, as well as to preserve the position of Jersey people resident in the EU.

“I am delighted to have the opportunity to meet with the Honorary Consuls to discuss their concerns and those of the communities they represent.”
