On Wednesday (10 June) in Grand Cayman, government officials met with honorary consuls who represent 12 countries.

Aimed at discussing disaster management plans for this year's hurricane season, the meeting was jointly convened by the Governor's Office and the Portfolio of Internal and External Affairs.

Present at the Grand Old House venue were honorary consuls representing Austria, Barbados, Brazil, Canada, United Kingdom, Honduras, India, Jamaica, the Philippines, Spain, Switzerland and the United States.

Addressing the group, His Excellency the Governor Stuart Jack, CVO, emphasized the importance of meeting at the start of every hurricane season in order to familiarise themselves with the national disaster management plan and strengthen their partnership.

He said their input was necessary to ensure effective collaboration in supporting the various nationals living on the Islands in the event of a disaster.

Emphasising the link that the honorary consuls had with their governments and the community, he concluded, "It is in all our interests that we work together to protect everyone."

The meeting's agenda included presentations from Hazard Management Cayman Islands Director Designate McLeary Frederick, Deputy Chief Immigration Officer Kerry Nixon and Chief of Protocol Virginia Madison.

This was the third annual meeting of honorary consuls.
